Dedicated wheelchair waiting areas on each light rail platform are located adjacent to bench seats underneath canopies. They are identified using Tactile Ground Surface Indicators. These waiting areas are positioned to correspond to the accessible seating sections inside the trams.

As all light rail stops have level access, there is no requirement for a wheelchair ramp to board or alight from the tram.

Check the accessibility facilities at the light rail stop locations and read through the tips for planning an accessible trip.

There are four dedicated priority seating areas for wheelchairs, which include a blue push button with an accessible symbol on the button. When pushed, the button requests the attention of the driver to give you more time to alight for exiting if needed.
