Léman Express trains have a number of features to accommodate disabled passengers:
• An adapted carriage with space for wheelchairs in each train
• Visual and audio information for the hearing and visually impaired
• Platform-level trains
• Extra-wide doors and wheelchair-accessible toilets
• Movable footboards (on Régiolis trains in France) and automatic ramps (on Flirt trains in Switzerland)
Disabled passengers must purchase tickets or passes to travel on Léman Express trains. However, guide dogs and individuals accompanying disabled passengers may travel free of charge; disabled passengers just need to show their disability card to the ticket inspector.
The disability cards accepted on Léman Express trains are:
- For passengers living in France: the Carte Mobilité Inclusion issued by the relevant authority
- For passengers living in Switzerland: the Carte Suisse de Légitimation pour les Voyageurs avec un Handicap
The terms and conditions of travel for disabled passengers – including fares and passenger assistance – are managed by the Swiss (SBB) and French (SNCF) railway companies.
The passenger assistance service is free of charge for passengers in wheelchairs, visually impaired passengers and passengers with other mental or physical impairments.
For cross-border journeys, we suggest you contact the railway company in your departure country at least 48 hours before your departure.
