Special Needs Customers

We guarantee access for all disabled passengers who use rail transport at the stations and on the trains.

We have created the position of Advisor for Special Needs Passengers  to bolster the confidence of these passengers and continuously improve the services we provide.

The Advisor's main duties are to advise the company on practices that defend and promote accessibility to CP's services for everyone with special needs, analyse obstacles and define priorities to adopt measures that make mobility an acquired right.

Meet CP's new Advisor for Special Needs Passengers  here, from January 2024.
