We offer a wide range of services that provide freedom and solutions for people with disabilities to know life beyond limitations. Removing The Barrier's programs, services, information and resources help transform disabilities into opportunities.
The out of doors is a very invigorating, healthful and beautiful place for great experiences. Breathe the fresh air, sit beneath a tree or toss in a fishing line at the lake. All great experiences, EXCEPT FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT GET THERE.
WIN is Florida's Largest Provider of Wheelchair Access. Our program allows us to transport a person with disabilities, along with their family, so they can access more remote areas not easily accessible for those with mobility issues. We make the beauty of nature accessible for all with custom made shuttles we can move from site to site.
Shuttle #1 has worn out. Shuttle #2 is working hard. Shuttle #3 is just a dream that we hope will become a reality.
We have now served programs serving people with disabilities in four of our beautiful Florida State Parks. Some of the trails in the State Parks are simply not suitable for traditional wheelchairs, but our inclusive shuttles allow the scenic trails to be experienced by all the guests. We often see solo off road wheelchairs, but not shuttles that can include traditional wheelchairs along with the caretaker or family.
We are having so many requests for us to bring one of our inclusive shuttles to community events that we have written a grant request for a third shuttle. The shuttle based at Lake Aurora is becoming more and more in demand at programs on the Lake Aurora campus, thus making it more difficult to serve the many central and south Florida programs needing the shuttle.
In the many programs we have served we have yet to cross paths with another wheelchair inclusive shuttle. We know they exist, but they simply are not out helping people at community events. We have become the largest provider of inclusive shuttle service in the State of Florida and likely in the Southeast USA – maybe in the whole country. That is not to say we are good, it is to say, “Shame on all of us for not meeting a very simple need.”
Our suggestion, if your church, business or organization is planning to buy a golf car shuttle, why not make it wheelchair inclusive. It will likely not cost much more, yet be of such great help to a large number of people in your community who simply stay home due to not being included. We are not a dealer, but we can help.

Its amazing how few people with disabilities are able to enjoy the beauty and adventure of life. RTBI is happy to assist in this important mission by providing beach wheelchairs, Mobi Chairs and other equipment so your family can have and enjoy an experience.
RTBI offers canoeing experiences for people with disabilities by supporting various organizations like Special Touch, Deliver the Dream and many others. Let us know when your organization wants to have a canoeing experience.
