We'd like to help you book in advance...
We want to help you in any way we can
We can provide things like:
- a wheelchair from the station entrance to the train
- wheelchair ramps on trains and platforms
- someone to guide you if you’re blind or visually impaired
- help climbing stairs or getting on and off the train
You can also use the National Rail access map to view the mobility facilities for any station.
Book help with your journey
We have recently reduced the notice required for booking assistance on our services to 12 hours. (We would still recommend 24 hours’ notice for travel on other operators' services).
At stations where our staff aren't always available, please call our Assisted Travel service.
To make a booking or find out more details about our services, our trains and stations including staffing and accessibility, please call:
Telephone: 0800 783 4524
Textphone: 0800 783 4548
These numbers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you prefer to fill out a form to make a booking, please use the web form below.
Whether you book in advance or not, when you arrive at the station please find a member of staff and let them know and they will help you. If you need to cancel a booking, even last minute, please phone assisted travel so they can let the stations know you are not travelling.
The government has advised people against non-essential travel. If your journey is essential and you need assistance to go by train, our staff will continue to provide help so that you can get to your destination safely. We will do everything we can to help you complete your journey, and while it is not a requirement to book ahead, we strongly recommend that you contact us to discuss your journey as soon as possible.
