Welcome Aboard Project

As part of the Department for Transport’s commitment to improving journeys for disabled rail passengers, £600,000 of funding has been dedicated to projects working on achieving this pledge. The ‘Welcome Aboard’ project aims to improve accessibility in the rail industry for people with less visible impairments. The staff of the British train operating company London North Eastern Railway (LNER) received training for the ‘Welcome Aboard’ app and were able to utilise it with passengers during trials at Waverley station.
