Need assistance on your trip? By letting us know your travel requirements in advance, we can make sure you’ll have a hassle-free journey, but, even if you need assistance on the day, we’ll still do everything we can.
Our stations can get very busy and space for wheelchairs is often limited, so when possible, it’s best to reserve a place at least 24 hours before you travel. You’ll have peace of mind for the journey and we’ll be able to arrange for a member of staff to give you any help you need. Booking ahead will also help us to plan with Network Rail and other train operators to improve your onward journey.
Passenger Assist is our service for passengers with special travel requirements.
It gives us the ability to:
- Arrange assistance
- Help you on and off our trains
- Reserve wheelchair spaces and seats
- Provide you with detailed rail information
- Assist with any animals or pets you have with you
