Accessibility on our trains

Some of our trains are different to others, which means they have different accessibility. So before you travel, it’s worth learning more about the trains you’ll use along your journey.

Wheelchairs on trains

Wheelchair spaces are available within standard class accommodation of our trains only.

Accessibility on class 313 trains

Class 313 trains serve routes along the south coast, mainly from Brighton to Hove, Portsmouth, Seaford and Eastbourne. Their accessibility facilities enable wheelchair users and mobility scooters to board them. They also have:

  • dedicated accessible space
  • call for aid
  • on-board ramp
  • staff on board to help

Please note, these trains do not have toilets.

Priority seats

Seats that are prioritised for people who are less able to walk or stand are clearly labelled in each carriage and are usually close to the exit doors. Passengers should give up priority seats if someone in need asks them.

Priority Seat Cards

Because not everyone feels comfortable asking for a priority seat, we issue Priority Seat Cards. You can show these when asking someone to give up their seat. Find out how to apply for a Priority Seat Card.

What to do if you need assistance at the station

We have friendly and helpful members of staff who can give assistance at our stations. Find out about how to book assistance.
