Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership
The Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership believes that the railway should be accessible to all members of the community. We work with Northern to make sure that our trains and stations cater for people with most common disabilities.
For enquiries or assistance Northern can be contacted in the following ways :
Freephone : 0800 200 6060 (enquires) 0800 138 5560 (assistance)
email : firstname.lastname@example.org
A copy of Northern’s Disabled People’s Protection Policy (DPPP) is available here
All the trains carry an access ramp on board. If you require assistance boarding a train simply signal to the conductor.
Access to the trains for wheelchairs and pushchairs is via the doors at the centre of the units which are usually marked with the disability sign. Most trains now have an accessible toilet and space for wheelchairs and mobility aids near the seats at the centre of the units.
We regret that mobility scooters cannot be accommodated on the trains unless they can be folded, due to restricted manoeuvrability and stability.
The accessibility of each station is summarised below. For further details click on the station name which links to National Rail site and look under ‘Accessibility and mobility access’
