General Accessibility Information

​General Accessibility Information

Queensland Rail aspires to become an accessible, customer-focused, world-class rail service provider through a commitment to improve accessibility for all customers through enhanced information, services and infrastructure/rollingstock.

We acknowledge we have customers with diverse accessibility requirements and varying levels of independence. These include blind or low vision, deaf or hard of hearing, reduced mobility and intellectual disabilities, including customers with dual and invisible disabilities.

The level of accessibility varies at each station across our long-distance network, and on board our trains.

Our Trains

The Rockhampton and Bundaberg Tilt Train and Spirit of Queensland have a range of accessible features and facilities on board. These include accessible travel options, accessible spaces for mobility devices and accessible bathrooms. These trains also have travel options with space for assistance animals and facilities to assist customers who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who are blind or have low vision.

The Spirit of the Outback, Westlander and Inlander are not accessible to most customers with mobility devices due to the narrow doors, aisle ways and lack of accessible facilities onboard. There are travel options with space for assistance animals. These services do not have facilities to assist customers who are deaf or hard of hearing or blind or have low vision.

Detailed information about accessible facilities on each of our trains is available at Accessible facilities by service

Our Stations

Some stations across Queensland Rail’s long-distance network present a significant gap between the platform and the train carriage entrance, resulting in a steep incline when boarding using our ramps.

Ramps are available at most stations to assist customers leaving and joining our trains. To learn more, go to Joining or leaving your service

Access to stations and platform facilities vary depending on the location. Please visit Station information to learn about what facilities are available at your station, such as ramps, lifts, tactile edging, hearing loops and heights between platforms and the train entrance.
