If you need assistance navigating the station or a ramp to get on your train, our passenger assistance service can help. Whether you book assistance in advance or not, our teams are here to help. Booking in advance with our Assisted Travel service helps to ensure that we can have everything in place to help you. The national booking system operates across the National Rail network.
For Assisted Travel, we recommend that you let us know 12 hours before you travel for journeys on our services between any two of the stations we manage. Arrive at the station 30 minutes before your train is due, and at staffed stations contact a member of station staff when you arrive. For journeys that go beyond South Western Railway, we recommend that you give us 24 hours' notice.
Between 06:00 and 22:00 hours, only 4 hours' notice will be required for journeys between any two of the following stations:
