The buses have the same general appearance on the outside with the Disney Transport logo and white and red color scheme.

The middle doors open as usual to allow guests with mobility devices to drive up the ramp right to the accessible section.

The new system to secure mobility devices is called Q-Straint. Bus drivers will assist guests with properly parking their wheelchair or ECV with the new system.

To use the system, guests will back their wheelchair or ECV into the system using the yellow line as a guide. A button will lower the arm on the outside of the vehicle to secure it in place. There are a set of fold-down seats in the bay as well.

  1. I’m confused, do you have to back up the ramp unto the bus, then back into the ECV area? It looks like those riders will be traveling backwards, not always a good thing for those who get motion sick. Because yes, not everyone rides the attractions that are twirling, and bouncing in the park. Also, how will this work when there are already people on the bus?
