Sunshine Wheels has implemented several safety measures to protect our passengers, including:
Sunshine Wheels is exclusively dedicated to serving individuals with mobility challenges.
All of our vehicles are equipped and maintained to meet the highest standards for personal safety and comfort. Our full-size, wheelchair-accessible vans have ADA-compliant lifts and ramps, plus plenty of space, which makes for an easy exit.
We employ our own van drivers who are dependable, caring, and have extensive experience with driving wheelchair-accessible vehicles.
Our trip rates for non-emergency medical transportation are predetermined and reimbursed by the State of Connecticut.
Our vans have ample room for multiple passengers and can hold two to three wheelchairs comfortably. This option is often helpful so that a CNA/Personal Care Attendant can assist multiple passengers at once.
As part of New Horizons, we have over 30 years of experience with efficiently scheduling reservations and effectively managing rides for individuals with physical disabilities.
New Horizons, Inc. is a locally based and managed 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with three divisions – New Horizons Village in Farmington, Cherry Brook Health Care Center in Canton, and New Horizons Middlebury.
