Travel assistance for the disabled, visually impared and those travelling with animals and bicycles.
The Monorail and Light Rail are easily accessible to the aged, families with prams and people with a disability.
All the Monorail stations have lift access and the Light Rail stations have either ramp or lift access. It is very easy to get both on an off the Monorail with flat platform access and the comfortable cabins provide access for prams and wheelchairs.
It is important to be aware that at busy times such as school holidays the vehicles may be very full. However, Monorails depart every 3 minutes so there should be another less crowded vehicle departing within minutes.
All the Light Rail stations have either ramp or lift access. The Light Rail is also easy to get on and off from the platform and on board the vehicle you will find plenty of room for a wheelchair or pram.
It is important to note that there is only one lift at Lilyfield Station. On the rare occasion that this lift is out of service for a short period, the station will not be wheelchair accessible at this time. Of course Metro Light Rail will ensure that the lift is repaired as quickly as possible.
If you are making a long or difficult journey to get to the Lilyfield Station to catch the Light Rail, it may be worth calling the contact number listed below to ensure that the lift is in service.
Announcements will be made on the vehicles at the previous stop if they lift is out of service to avoid any difficulties on arrival at Lilyfield Station.
Glebe Station is easily accessible and pram and wheelchair friendly however, there is a steep incline up to Glebe Point Road from this station which may be difficult for some. It may be easier to access Glebe Point Road from Jubilee Park Station.
If you need any assistance don't hesitate to ask the Monorail staff on the station or the Conductors aboard your tram.
If you have any questions about station access, please phone 02 8584 5288, 24 hours a day.
