East Midlands Trains are committed to meeting the needs of our passengers with disabilities and to providing excellent customer service. That's why we have a Disabled People’s Protection Policy (DPPP) setting out how we protect the interests of passengers with disabilities.
We want to ensure that travelling is a straightforward and comfortable experience for everyone, offering help and assistance when needed. We can help you with journey planning, booking your tickets, making seat reservations and through every stage of your journey with us, including meeting you on and off our trains.
