Wheelchairs and mobility scooters

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters on our trains

A new guide has been produced to give you the correct information for how to be safe when using stations and travelling on trains in your wheelchair.

On our trains

You can bring a manual or electric wheelchair, or a mobility scooter onto our trains – if they fit.

We have ramps to help you on and off the train at all of our step-free stations and on most of our trains.

Our trains have spaces for you in carriages that are clearly marked on the outside of the train. Wheelchair spaces are available within standard class accommodation only. We want passengers who use wheelchairs to be able to travel with us in the space allocated to them. On all our trains priority will always be given to wheelchair users. See more on our cycle policy.

Most of our trains also have accessible toilets.

Size and weight limits

For safety reasons, we have some restrictions on the size and weight of wheelchairs and mobility scooters that we can carry. Larger wheelchairs or mobility scooters may not fit safely onto our ramps or into the accessible spaces on our trains.

The limits are:

  • width: 700mm
  • length, including footplates: 1200mm
  • weight, including your weight: 300kg

How can we improve?

We’d love to hear from you about any ideas you have for how we could improve accessibility at stations.
