The advent of seat tracking systems has brought with it great fl exibility in the way in which vehicle operators can specify and configure seating patterns.
Instead of passengers having to adapt to a seating layout, the seating can be matched to their needs, whether in terms of legroom or the number of seats being provided. First and foremost, however, the systems allow seating to be removed completely to allow access for a wheelchair, and then to secure the wheelchair and occupant safely within the minibus.
Although it is fairly easy to remove and replace seats in the tracking, bear in mind the weight of the seat when you wish to remove it; depending on how heavy the seat is, for safe manual handling, this may be a two-person job. When the seat is removed, ensure you have suffi cient clean, dry storage space available.
Seat component manufacturers have devised several different quick-release systems which make the job of moving and removing seats much easier. Minibus Options can supply all leading certified tracking systems.
