If you need assistance navigating the station or a ramp to get on your train, our passenger assistance service can help. Whether you book assistance in advance or not, our teams are here to help. Booking in advance with our Assisted Travel service helps to ensure that we can have everything in place to help you. The national booking system operates across the National Rail network.
You can request Assisted Travel at any point before your journey. To make sure we have staff available to help you, we recommend you book 12 hours in advance, or for journeys between the stations below, at least 4 hours in advance (for travel between 06:00 and 22:00).

Get in touch with our station staff at staffed stations once you've arrived, and we'll take care of the rest. If you're at an unstaffed station, make your way to the platform, and we'll do our best to let the on-board team know you're boarding. Give yourself plenty of time when you arrive so that we can make sure you're in the right place on the platform to board the train.
