Destinations Mobility

by Shannon Coe, Program Coordinator

The AT Network often gets phone calls from individuals looking for funding to purchase modified vehicles. Unfortunately, there are not many funding sources out there. Depending on whether the vehicle is new or used, the make and model, and the modifications needed, the cost of modified vehicles can go up to $90,000. Unless you are wealthy, the price can be a shock to anyone’s system. So when I came across a non-profit organization called Destinations Mobility that sells low-cost modified vehicles, I called the Division Manager, Richard Rosebush, to find out more information about this new business model. 

Destinations Mobility is a division of Paratransit that provides affordable modified vehicles and mobility equipment throughout California. You can also rent modified vehicles from the organization. It’s based in Sacramento, CA and has a wide range of wheelchair lifts, specialized hand controls, and mobility vehicles. Wheelchair lifts are 20% less than the market price. There were at least 30 vehicles under $25,000. There was even a 1994 modified vehicle for $7,000. This vehicle was donated to Destinations Mobility, and they repaired it to sell at a low price. The organization accepts donated vehicles, and the donation is tax deductible. All the revenue from the car sales go back to support their parent company, Paratransit, which provides affordable transportation to people with disabilities and seniors. If you are unable to pay for the modified vehicles, Destinations Mobility works with lending institutions to provide loans to customers. To learn more about Destinations Mobility, you can go to:
