Accessible to Everyone
From the Great Northern to South West trains, the rail services are becoming easily accessible to everyone. There are very few stations which are not of easy access to the disabled and those that are have assistance to help you the very best they can.
Use this website to answer any questions you may have about gaining access to the rail services and allow yourself to plan ahead to make your journey go smoothly.
The aim is to encourage as many disabled customers to use the railway as possible. As track and station operators are still working on removing as many barriers as possible, we hope that this website will help you to make informed choices about your travel plans, identify any potential barriers that might affect your journey, and find ways to avoid these difficulties.
On the train – toilets
Many modern trains have accessible toilets. If you need to use accessible toilets tell staff when you book your assistance. This means that priority seating, or if necessary a wheelchair space, can be booked which is near to the accessible toilets. Staff can also be booked to provide help with boarding and to make sure your wheelchair space is unobstructed by other people's luggage and other items.
