We want to make sure that passengers can make as much of their journeys as possible by rail.
However, we will arrange alternative accessible transport, such as a taxi, for you and a companion if:
- you cannot travel to or from a station which is inaccessible to you;
- rail-replacement transport is inaccessible to you; or
- a short-notice disruption to services makes services inaccessible to you.
We provide this transport for the same price as your rail ticket. We discuss what kind of taxi you need before we book it. The alternative transport takes you to or from the most convenient accessible station or staffed station where someone can help you.
We cannot guarantee alternative accessible transport for a mobility scooter because they often cannot be carried safely in a taxi. However, if you are already travelling with us in a mobility scooter when the disruption happens, we will make you as comfortable as possible while you wait for the next train.
