    Wheelchair Accessible Taxi Services

    Engineers Without Borders Asia is looking for wheelchair accessible taxis to transport an electric wheelchair to the lab, so we can test our software logic for remote stopping of beginners on electric wheelchairs in case of emergency.

    Any recommendations for taxi that can easily load up one electric wheelchair and seat maybe 3 passengers?

    while not really taxi, HWA provides wheelchair friendly vans for transport for several years already. A few days ago, they expanded their fleet. See this news item:

    A new fleet of 11 specially retrofitted vans was launched by the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) yesterday.
    The vans have hydraulic lifts, which can raise wheelchair users aboard them, and systems that put a brake on wheelchairs when the vehicles are on the move. They also have high roofs to fit wheelchairs with high backs.
