ADA Compliant Wheelchair Lifts

The ADA compliant Mobilift TX is the North American standard for making trains accessible to passengers with disabilities. The reason is simple: the Mobilift TX has proven to be fast, reliable, and affordable over 20 years of rough and ready outdoor use.

Trains can safely accommodate the special needs of mobility impaired passengers using the Mobilift TX. Our manual mobile lift provides easy-to-use, low cost access for persons with disabilities, and delivers consistent operational value.

Disabled Passenger Access

Over 700 units are in use at major railroads (national, state, and local) as well as at most of the tourist and historical railroads and museums across North America.

The Mobilift TX wheelchair lift is manually powered, easy to use, highly portable, and requires no electricity. The absence of batteries, hydraulic, and electric components make the lift extremely lightweight and reliable. It comes with heavy duty wheels, allowing it to roll easily along railroad platforms.

This ADA compliant solution can be in place now:
Without platform modifications
Without retrofit costs
Without waiting for lift equipped rail cars
Without jeopardizing freight clearances with mini high platforms
