Bus routes (public transport routes in general) get mapped with 
weelchair=yes. Totally acceptable to do so to signify that the route is 
accesible with a wheelchair.
E.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/4257112
I would map public transport nodes and ways (the platform and 
stop_position) with wheelchair too.
