When designing future transport vehicles the (steadily increasing) size of mobility aids as well as the electronic wheelchairs should be taken into account. Transport vehicles should have low floors and/or ramps and platforms aligned to the boarding level of the vehicle to enable wheelchair access. Beyond this, however,
internal arrangement of the vehicles should be designed to allow wheelchair users to park in their designated places. Here is a good very good example of an internal design of a public transport bus.
