Assisted Travel

Let us know how we can help you.

If you need assistance navigating the station or a ramp to get on your train, our passenger assistance service can help. Book in advance with our Assisted Travel service to help us ensure that we can have everything prepared for your needs. The national booking system operates across the National Rail network.

Booking early is important as our trains, and our staff, can get very busy. During our franchise we’ll be working to reduce the time required for booking assistance, and we’ll update this page to let you know of any changes.

For Assisted Travel, we recommend that you let us know at least 24 hours before you travel. Arrive at the station 30 minutes before your train is due, and at staffed stations contact a member of station staff when you arrive.

To make an Assisted Travel booking, contact our Assisted Travel team from 06:00 to 22:00 every day except 25 and 26 December:

  • Call 0800 52 82 100 (freephone)
