Access for all is our aim

Posted: 11th April 2017

• Rail Awareness Open Day at Dundee station
• Awareness session geared towards helping more customers to use rail services easily

The ScotRail Alliance is hosting a Rail Awareness Open Day at Dundee Station on 19 April, from 10am-1pm.

Customers who have concerns about how they can access rail services and who may need assistance to use trains are invited to come along and speak to the team at the station. Encouraging more people with reduced mobility or disabilities to use the railway and see trains as their preferred mode of transport is the aim of the awareness session.

The event is open to all – including parents with young disabled children, older people with disabilities, elderly customers, carers and companions of people with reduced mobility and those with sight impairments.

A train will be available for boarding and alighting during the session and ScotRail Alliance team members will be on hand to explain the assistance available and also to discuss individual customer requirements.

Every year, the ScotRail Alliance’s on-train and station teams provide over 78,000 assisted journeys for customers with a variety of needs. Assistance for rail journeys can be booked here.

For more information, please contact ScotRail Alliance Comms on 0141 555 4105 or email: communications@scotrail.co.uk
