Buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts. Check their website for routes and schedules. 

If you have a need for a more specialized service, C-Tran does offer paratransit services, known as C-Van. This is a reservation based transit service for those with a disability that prevents them from riding the fixed-route bus system.    

Ride Shares 

Both Uber and Lyft are available in Vancouver.
