Travelling can be complicated for wheelchair users. Even a trip to the shops can be a major expedition, first involving an often complicated, and sometimes uncomfortable, pass from the chair to a car seat. Then, the assistance of another person is required to fold up and store the wheelchair, which in small cars is virtually impossible. When arriving at the destination a reverse repeat of the process has to be performed, and often, by the time you're where you want to be, everyone is worn out!
