Stand on the elevator platform instead of the rails. The bots don't register the rails as being part of the elevator since their pathfinding isn't very good. If that doesn't work, try jumping back and forth from the elevator's floor and rails, they should get on the elevator then.
Yet, still...

It's bad pathfinding AI. The bots are programmed to (mostly) take the same route through a level as the human player(s). The bots' pathfinding AI just shuts down basically if you try to take a route that requires jumping.
A good example is the shortcut over the buss in chapter 1 of Dark Carnival. The bots simply do not know how to take that path because in their programing, the bumper you need to jump on to take the shortcut is probably the same as a ledge high above the ground.
Another good one is cutting through the fire in Dead Center 1. It's easy for a human to do(and often the minor damage is worth it in Versus), but the bots will either go around the long way or they'll just stand in the fire because they can't figure out a way through the fire without jumping.

The bots are dumb, that's it.
Yet, still...
