Full consultation and planning

Making sure that Virgin Rail keep accessibility on track

Virgin Trains commissioned Direct Access to undertake accessibility audits of all of the Virgin Rail managed stations on the West Coast Mainline between London and Glasgow serving 35m passengers a year.

Virgin subsequently engaged Direct Access on a consultancy basis to provide advice and training support across their entire portfolio. Our work with Virgin goes beyond physical access to stations to enhancing the entire Virgin experience from start to end for disabled passengers.

“Thank you for the comprehensive accessibility audits of the Virgin Train stations on the West Coast Mainline. You spotted the simple things that make a huge difference to our 30m passengers. Passengers from London to Glasgow will potentially benefit from improved facilities following your recommendations. The fresh perspective has enabled us to see what we were doing right and what could be improved. We have been fired up by your audits and are putting actions into place.”
