WEGO Operating Policies
Passengers with strollers can wheel their stroller onto the bus with the infant in the stroller. While on board, the stroller may be parked in the wheelchair securement positions with the infant in the stroller, preferably facing rearward. The infant must be secured into the stroller and the brake/wheel lock applied. In addition, the adult shall hold the stroller while the bus is in motion.
If the two wheelchair securement positions are full, or if a passenger requiring one of these positions boards, the stroller must vacate and move to another seat where the infant can be removed and the stroller can be folded and safely stored between the seats to ensure the aisle is kept clear.
