The city of Tulsa is getting rid of some of its outdated vehicles and mobility equipment.
The city is in the process of purchasing the equipment to replace older vehicles.
The new vehicles will be able to accommodate larger passengers, such as a pregnant woman or someone with a medical need.
The equipment is needed to provide medical mobility for patients with spinal injuries and other conditions, as well as assist people in wheelchairs or walkers.
It’s expected to be complete by September, but the city is accepting public comments until April 15.
The City Council passed a resolution in June asking the Tulsa Police Department to get rid of the old vehicles.
The council members also voted to look at ways to help the city’s disabled community, such the use of a mobile emergency medical service, and the possibility of having a medical transportation unit for people with disabilities in the city.
City officials are looking for suggestions to improve the mobility of disabled people and the disabled community.
