A disabling accident or illness can change someone’s life forever, making it more difficult to move around or even to leave the house. In this situation, some people shut down, resigned to being stuck at home because of limited mobility.
Bill Koeblitz and his team at MobilityWorks want these individuals to know they’re not trapped — they just haven’t found the right transportation yet.
“We want to make the world accessible,” says Koeblitz, MobilityWorks’ founder and CEO. “It’s always been our focus to enable people who use wheelchairs to go where they want to go and do what they want to do.”
MobilityWorks helps individuals using wheelchairs regain their freedom and stay active by offering a wide selection of wheelchair-accessible vehicles for both consumer and commercial use.
Seniors 55 and older as well as residents with disabilities at Chapman Partnership will receive augmented transporation assistance through the federally funded Section 5310 program, awarding Chapman Partnership a 2016, 12-passenger Ford Van fully equipped with a wheelchair lift and three wheelchair securement devices.
The Federal Transit Administration’s Section 5310 program provides forumla funding to states for the purpose of assisting private nonprofit groups in meeting the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities. The van will assist in addressing transportation barriers experienced by Chapman Partnership residents when attempting to access healthcare, education, employment, or other life-sustaining activities.

Tour stops include OEMs, dealers and trade shows.

Reebok had an idea to take their amazing fitness equipment and expertise to people across America, and wanted a new and unique way to do it. Ford, TransitWorks and Adrian Steel came together to bring the Reebok Fit Truck to life!
The Reebok Fit Truck is a mobile fitness van which features a variety of fitness equipment and gear in the back. It will be transported to different events around the country and host outdoor fitness classes, yoga sessions and more. Reebok will also be partnering with nationally known fitness experts at these events. Reebok’s goal is to have a growing number of these vans on the road.
TransitWorks installed our SmartCrew upfit with SmartFloor and 4 Smart Seats in the second row area, along with a metal partition and our exclusive walls and headliner. Ford called us because we have the only approved Crew Van upfit which meets Ford and FMVSS 201U Head Impact testing requirements. From Akron, the van went to Adrian Steel to complete the upfit of fitness equipment and racking in the cargo area behind the partition.
