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.
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.
