Elderly and disabled people with mobility problems, parents with
young children and passengers with heavy luggage will find it much
easier to get around the rail network with the launch of a
new interactive web guide to stations in Britain, called ‘Stations Made Easy’.
In a national railway first anywhere in the world, over 2,500
stations in Britain were photographed to give passengers a step by step
guide of how to get around when they travel by train. The photographs
allow people to pick a route around a station that makes their journey
as easy as possible.
The guide will also show interactive maps of every station in the
country, pointing out where passengers can find all the facilities,
such as ticket machines, toilets, taxi points, shops and bars.
The new application can be found on the National Rail Enquiries website,
which is the most visited travel and transport site in Great Britain
with, on average, more than twelve million visits to the site every
month, and is run by the Association of Train Operating Companies
Please visit www.nationalrail.co.uk/stations_destinations to use the 'Stations Made Easy' application.
