Improving accessibility - DART improvement pilot launched

At the end of January, the DART Accessibility Improvement Pilot Scheme was launched.

 

This programme is designed to give a better and more responsive service to customers seeking assistance, through the establishment of thirteen station zones, which will see hub stations for each zone across the DART network, each with a dedicated assistance phone line.

 

The pilot is designed as progress, not resolution, on the path to delivering the most accessible rail service possible.  It was devised with the assistance of mobility and sensory impaired representative bodies and individual users, who will be consulted on an ongoing basis to enhance the service we provide beyond this pilot.

 

On Intercity services, Iarnród Éireann plans in 2018 to rollout new Customer Service Officer roles across trains on the national network, meaning assistance would be available at all times on Intercity trains as the new roles are deployed.
