Wheelchair Accessible Van Rentals In Massachusetts
Pick-up Locations in Massachusetts
“Location pick up is convenient at the Citgo gas on 62 near rt 3. For location a ten. The van was cool. I liked it’s shape and it ran well. I could not get the interior overhead lighting to work. I do not think it was user error. I love that the front passenger is open to lock in the wheelchair close to driver. If the lights worked this would’ve been 5 star! The difficulty in reliable handicap transportation that is affordable is scarce. For $140 plus fees I was really grateful to have access.”
“After spending a whole day trying to find transportation for my mom to get to her doctor’s appointment, I finally gave up and called Wheelers to rent a van and drive her myself. Mom is in a large Broda wheelchair so I was very concerned that it might not fit into a van.
The van turned out to be the best decision ever. Everything went perfectly. In fact, it went so well that after her doctor’s appointment, we took her over to Fenway Park ( Boston Red Sox) for some photos.
Thank yo so much for all your help – great job and a great product.”
“Great customer service, and awesome van. couldnt have asked for a better rental experience.”

Massachusetts is the most populous state in the New England region found in the northeastern part of the United States. Massachusetts is bordered by New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, New York to the west, Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Boston is the capital city of Massachusetts as well as the largest city in the state. In pre-colonial times, the state was inhabited by many Native American tribes like the Wampanoag, Narragansett, Nipmuc, Pocomtuc, Mahican, and Massachusett. Massachusetts was a site of early colonization when the Pilgrims of the Mayflower founded the Plymouth Colony in 1620. Massachusetts has played an important role in U.S. history, from Revolutionary War sites like the Boston Massacre and the Battles of Lexington and Concord to more modern contributions like its many prominent political figures like the Kennedy family.
Most of Massachusetts has a humid continental climate, with cold winters and warm summers. Massachusetts’s economy is supported by higher education, biotechnology, information technology, finance, health care, tourism, manufacturing, and defense sectors. There are a total of 36,800 miles worth of interstates and highways throughout the state, the longest being I-90, which stretches 136 miles and runs East-West across the state.
Massachusetts’s Top Wheelchair-friendly Tourist Attractions
Boston is one of the oldest and most historic cities in America and is a must-see destination for any vacation in Massachusetts. The city plays host to many attractions and events so everyone can find something to enjoy. The city has five major league professional sports teams– the Boston Celtics (NBA), Boston Red Sox (MLB), Boston Bruins (NHL), New England Patriots (NFL), and the New England Revolution (MLS)– as well as other famous sporting events like the Boston Marathon and major golf tournaments. The city’s public transportation is mostly accessible to wheelchair users. All subway cars can be accessed from the platform by wheelchair. The green line requires the train operator to extend a ramp to bridge the gap. Despite every train being accessible from the platform, not every station is equipped with elevators to the street level. Boston’s public bus system is accessible to the disabled and wheelchair users. Buses are equipped with lowered floors and wheelchair lifts, as well as spaces, tie-downs, and wheelchair restraints.
Cape Cod is a peninsula that extends from the Massachusetts coast into the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Cod has over 550 miles of coastline and is home to many quaint villages, beach towns, and lighthouses which makes it a very popular summertime destination. Many of the beaches along Cape Cod’s coast are wheelchair accessible. Dozens of beaches have been equipped with special assistive devices available for use during the summer months, like floating wheelchairs, over-sand wheelchairs, boardwalks, ramps, and hard-surfaced mats. Due to limited availability, it is best to call ahead to make sure that these amenities are available. Not every beach along the coast offers the same level of accommodations, so below are some of the best options.
Salem, Massachusetts, is the infamous site of Colonial America’s most notorious cases of mass hysteria– the Salem Witch Trials. From February 1692 to May 1693, a series of hearings and prosecutions were held accusing people of witchcraft. More than two hundred people were accused, thirty were found guilty, and nineteen of them were executed. Since then, the city of Salem and the Salem Witch Trials have become popular settings in pop culture. The city offers many tours of historic sites and haunted ghost tours associated with the witch trials. One of the most popular is the Salem: Haunt and History Guided Night Tour. This tour takes approximately an hour and a half and goes through Downtown Salem’s most historic and haunted outdoor areas. Each tour visits roughly ten locations like cemeteries, the Witch Trials Memorial, filming locations for popular movies, and historic buildings like the Old Salem Jail and the Salem Witch Dungeon. The tour is handicapped accessible and takes place rain or shine.
Faneuil Hall was built in 1742 by Peter Faneuil, Boston’s wealthiest merchant, and gifted to the city of Boston. Faneuil Hall is the historic location where colonists first protested the 1764 Sugar Act and established the diction of “no taxation without representation.” Founding Fathers used the hall on many occasions throughout the revolution and the nation’s early years. Today Faneuil Hall is now part of a larger festival marketplace. The Faneuil Hall Marketplace offers several free tours of the architecture, politics, and geography of the marketplace. The marketplace also draws daily performances from street performers, musicians, and magicians and numerous dining and shopping opportunities. Faneuil Hall Marketplace offers entrance ramps and elevators that lead to wheelchair-accessible restrooms on its lower level. Parking is limited, so it is best to show up early.
Martha’s Vineyard is an island located south of Cape Cod and is a popular summer destination. Martha’s Vineyard is well known for being an affluent summer residential community. The island is only accessible via a ferry from the mainland. All passenger decks of passenger and vehicle ferries are fully accessible to wheelchair users. Additionally, each of the ferry terminals has several on-site parking spaces reserved for individuals with disabilities. Once on the island, there are many beaches for visitors to enjoy. State Beach offers wooden ramps that lead down to the beach from a parking lot with ample handicapped parking. Camp Jabberwocky is a summer camp for children and adults with disabilities and offers many planned activities for participants like yoga, dances, cookouts, boat trips, and more.
