There are mandatory standards for rail vehicle accessibility. The standards include the provision of wheelchair spaces on trains as well as making travel easier for those travelling with prams/pushchairs and small children. Except where a dispensation exists, all rail vehicles, including trams, must meet the accessibility standards and my Department is closely monitoring the rail industry’s progress towards meeting them.
