Accessible trains

We’re campaigning to make train travel accessible to everybody. 

Rail is key to our transport system. It connects us to friends and family, allows us to get to work and school, take up hobbies and explore.

38 per cent of stations in Britain don’t have step-free access, and if updates to make stations step-free continue at the current rate, the system won't be fully accessible until 2070.

Get on board for trains for all

We want rail travel to be accessible to everyone, from booking tickets to getting on the train, and throughout the journey.

We’re calling for a new law that guarantees all rail journeys in Britain will be fully accessible by 2030.

It’s not good enough that disabled people will have to wait another half a century before they can use the whole rail system. 

No one should be left behind because of inaccessible trains and stations.

If you agree get on board today and join our campaign to make #TrainsForAll. Together our voice is louder.

"Inaccessible trains and stations have meant I’ve missed out on events plenty of times. If train travel was accessible, it would completely alter my life in so many ways."

The lack of accessible rail travel in Britain means that many disabled people are not able to participate fully in society. With the slow pace of progress in making transport accessible, it’s now time for the law to be on the side of disabled people. 

We are campaigning to build a fairer, more inclusive society. This includes equal access to public transport for disabled people. Our policy briefing explains what we've been doing so far and the changes we want to see.
