Coaches are equipped with a wheelchair lift. However, it can’t be deployed at all stops, so it’s best to check in advance if your stop is accessible.
Wheelchair users are advised to book travel in advance, although this is not essential. This will allow them to carry out the following:
- that the wheelchair is compatible with the space on the coach
- that the combined weight of the customer and the wheelchair do not exceed the maximum weight capacity of being lifted by the wheelchair lift
- that the locations at which the customer plans to board and alight the coach from are accessible stops at which the wheelchair lift can be deployed
- that the specific coach on which the customer plans to travel is not already fully booked
It is recommended that you contact them 36 hours in advance of travel on the telephone number above. This will ensure we are able to carry out these checks. If you book same-day travel, they will make all reasonable efforts to carry out these checks on the day.
Customers cannot travel in their mobility scooters, however small lightweight mobility scooters that can be dismantled and safely stowed in the luggage hold of the coach are accepted.
In order to check if your scooter will be accepted, you will need to give details of the size, make and model of the mobility scooter you will be travelling with. You will be advised
either at the time of booking or by calling you back, about the suitability of your mobility scooter for carriage in the luggage hold.
Are accepted on National Express services.
You just need to contact the Customer Service at the latest 36 hours before departure.
