CONNECT – Wheelchair Accessible Golf Cart

Often times over-looked, accessibility can be a huge issue for facilities and venues with larger parking lots.  The Connect Shuttle is a wheelchair-accessible golf cart that comfortably and safely transports four seated passengers (includes driver) and one wheelchair passenger.

Boarding is a breeze thanks to a large aluminum bi-fold wheelchair ramp that boasts a 500lb capacity and conveniently folds up and out of the way when not in use.  Once in position, a four-point Q-Straint system is utlized to lock the wheelchair firmly in place (attendant required).

Built atop the Yamaha Drive2 platform the Connect Shuttle is available in both gas and electric power with a slew of standard features.
