MF lift steps?

Now this may be something that was already debated, but I just had to wonder.  
Does Millennium Force have a different way to acces the whole lift besides
stairs that run paralell to the track?  The track looks skimpy enough as it is,
even if it were 150 ft tall I'd feel a bit insecure as a guest walking down
from the top of the lift for an emergency unload.  Now I've had to climb
Shockwave's lift all the way at SFGAm, and it it's a lot of work to do so, and
MF's lift is almost twice as long and high.  Is it just me or do the steps by
the lift look kind of skimpy?  They designed a faster way to get the train to
the top of the lift, it seems they overlooked the safety of emergency
situations.

There is an emergency car that automatically climbs the structure next to
the track in case of an emergency.  You will not have to walk all the way
down, just ride down on a little rescue car.

Thanks!  I wasn't aware of that.  Do you know what it looks like, how many
people it can hold, and will ride ops be able to use it for routine hosting?
