Assisted Travel:

If you choose to travel unbooked (turn up and go), when the station is staffed, our station staff can provide assistance getting on and off the train and assistance around the station and to the platform. Please contact a member of staff on arrival.

Trains calling at this station do not have on board staff. Alternatively, you can arrange assistance by:

  • Pressing the “emergency & assisted travel” button on a station Help Point
  • Calling our freephone number: 0800 058 2844
  • Texting us on 0800 138 1018

Whether you pre book assistance or travel on a 'turn up and go' basis, we recommend arriving 20 minutes prior to your train departing. This is to allow us to make sure arrangements are in place at your destination, or interchange, station such as the availability of staff and lifts. If there is insufficient time to check these arrangements, we may assist you onto the next available train.
