Accessible spaces for a wheeled mobility device and/or transfer accessible seats are limited. Please make your reservation in advance if possible to ensure availability.
Up until 14 days prior to the departure of each train from its origin city, reservations for accessible bedrooms may be made only for passengers with a disability who travel with a wheeled mobility device.
Passengers booking an accessible bedroom accommodation will be required to certify that they require one or more of the accessible features of the accessible room accommodation in order to book and receive the discount. Passengers are not required to indicate the type of disability they have but only that they require the accessible features due to a disability. Conductors on trains with accessible room accommodations will provide a self-certification form to be completed by the passenger.

For this reason, we urge you to make your reservations as far in advance of travel as possible.
