Our Disabled People's Protection Policy sets out how we aim to assist passengers who would normally find it difficult to access our services. It also contains detailed information about access arrangements at the stations we normally call at.

Please note that our Disabled People's Protection Policy is currently under review. Please visit our Electric mobility scooter page for updated information on travelling with an electric mobility scooter on our services.
