What Is A Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV)?

A Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (or WAV) is a standard vehicle that has been specially modified so that a wheelchair user can travel safely and comfortably while seated in their wheelchair. There are many different types of WAVs, including WAVs that you can drive (either from your wheelchair or by transferring to a special seat) and WAVs that you can travel in as a passenger, which you can do upfront next to the driver or, more commonly, towards the back of the vehicle in what's called a Rear Passenger WAV.
