Wheelchair Taxis in Brussels, Belgium
Approximately 10% of taxi cabs in Brussels are wheelchair accessible. These vehicles are equipped with rear-entry ramps that can be folded out and allow a wheelchair to easily roll in and out of the vehicle. This allows the passenger to remain seated in their wheelchair for the entire journey. Each Brussels wheelchair taxi has a securement space and safety tie-downs/straps to accommodate one manual or powered wheelchair.
These specialized taxis can be ordered on demand at all hours, though wait times will be higher late at night and early in the morning.
