CUSHMAN SHUTTLE SERVICE AROUND THE ROYAL PARKS
'Liberty Drives' enables those with limited mobility the opportunity to see all 760 acres of the Royal Parks, by providing half hour rides around the surroundings in the electric powered Cushman vehicles. The Shuttles are capable of seating up to five passengers together with one wheelchair and allows people to be dropped off at different points around the parks, and then picked up again later.
The scheme is operated free of charge and is funded entirely by voluntary donations.
Richard Tyrell, International Sales Manager at Ransomes Jacobsen, who distribute the Cushman Shuttles in the UK, commented, "The service that 'Liberty Drives' provide is invaluable, allowing those with limited mobility the opportunity to enjoy the Royal Parks.
"At Ransomes Jacobsen we are delighted that these Cushman Shuttles have been put to work for such a worthwhile cause, and that they dovetail with the Royal Parks environmental policy that includes the use of alternative power and cleaner fuels. "
