All mobility devices will be properly secured to a vehicle using the installed securement system (four point tie down).

As of March 1, 2007, Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation (HDPT) operators (drivers) will decline transport to any passenger that refuses to have their mobility device properly secured as defined in HDPT Policy 6.4 and 49 CFR 37.165 (c) (2) (3).

Passengers using a mobility device will be requested to wear a seat belt and must be properly restrained using the vehicle restraint system. Those able to do so will be requested to move to a seat and use the vehicle seat belt system if vehicle is designed so.
