Mobility scooters and wheelchairs

Find out about bringing wheelchairs and mobility scooters onto Southern trains.

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters on our trains

You can bring a manual or electric wheelchair, or a mobility scooter onto our trains – if they fit. 

We have ramps to help you on and off the train at all of our step-free stations and on most of our trains. To ensure that a ramp is available we recommend that you book assisted travel giving 24 hours' notice.

Our trains have spaces for you in carriages that are clearly marked on the outside of the train. We want passengers who use wheelchairs to be able to travel with us in the space allocated to them. Priority will always be given to wheelchair users where there is limited space to accommodate wheelchair users and bicycles. See more on our cycle policy.

Most of our trains also have accessible toilets.

Book help with your journey

Let us know when you’re travelling with us to arrange help or speak to any of our employees at the station.

Size and weight limits

For safety reasons, we have some restrictions on the size and weight of wheelchairs and mobility scooters that we can carry. Larger wheelchairs or mobility scooters may not fit safely onto our ramps or into the accessible spaces on our trains.

The limits are:

  • width: 700mm
  • length, including footplates: 1200mm
  • weight, including your weight: 300kg

Let us know how we can improve

We’d love to hear from you about any ideas you have for how we could improve accessibility at stations.
