ScotRail to host Open Day

ScotRail is to host a Rail Awareness Open Day at Aberdeen railway station on 17 August 2016 for customers who may need extra assistance when travelling.

The train operator is inviting existing and potential rail users with reduced mobility to come along to learn about the services available to support them before, during and after their journey by train.

The event is open to all – including parents with young disabled children, older people with disabilities, elderly customers, carers and companions of people with reduced mobility. 

Patrick Nyamurundira, ScotRail’s Access and Inclusion Manager said: “It is important that we listen to and engage with customers with specific needs to get a better understanding of how best we can assist them and build their confidence when travelling with us.

“We want more people with reduced mobility to be using the railway and see trains as their preferred mode of transport.”
