Picture this: Lush tress all around, rivers brimming with water, birds flitting around against a dramatic sky and the pitter-patter of raindrops against your car’s window. Reminiscent of a road trip with your family, is it not? With the monsoons, a sense of wanderlust is imminent. The urge to travel to exotic locales, try mouth-watering cuisines and cherish every moment spent together with your family, even if it’s just over one weekend, can be overwhelming. Yet, instead of acting upon those urges and heading out for a getaway, we delay the plan for another time. And the main reason, more often than not, is a senior family member who, due to mobility constraints does not wish to burden himself/ herself, or the family members during that long journey.
To break these very shackles, Ezy Mov, India’s premier wheelchair accessible cab company was conceived. Founded by Rrajesh Patil, Romeo Ravva, and Bennet D’Cunha in 2015, Ezy Mov had only one objective in mind: To ensure a dignified mode of transport for all those with limited mobility through a technically advanced fleet of cabs fitted with world class equipment like hydraulic lifts and wheelchair restraint systems driven by a team of professional and courteous drivers. Much like Ezy Mov, other platforms like Enable Travel and ENAT ensure a comfortable and honourable travel experience for individuals with access hindrances.
Having one’s independency and freedom snatched away is a difficult obstacle to overcome. By accepting accessible transport, travellers both young and old can head out to their favourite spots, stress-free. Be it permanent or temporary, respite from being someone’s responsibility is empowering in its own stance. Ezy Mov’s vehicles ensure that a patient or traveller reaches his/ her destination sans any external help.
