Public transportation will only get you so far in Buenos Aires. Limitations in schedules and the reach of accessible routes may sometimes necessitate the hiring of private transportation.
Fortunately, a number of wheelchair transportation services presently operate in Buenos Aires. Some of the wheelchair accessible vehicles used are lift-equipped, while others have ramps. I tested a couple of these services out, and have provided contact information for the Buenos Aires accessible transportation companies below.
English-speaking owner/operator Christian provides a friendly accessible transportation service using his lift-equipped Fiat Doblo vehicle.
Headroom for power wheelchair users is limited (I had to tilt my head down) and the wheelchair lift maxes out at approximately 600 lbs. capacity, but the service is stellar. You’ll enjoy talking with Christian during your ride!
The cost of an airport transfer to/from downtown Buenos Aires is $120, but pricing is negotiable – especially if you will utilize his services more than once. To learn more or to book a ride, reach out using the contact information provided below:
