Wheelchair Users

A wheelchair user travelling in their wheelchair can obtain a 50% discount on the relevant Day Rover. This will also apply to some special events but not on special trains.

One person can travel with the wheelchair user and also receive a 50% discount on their Day Rover, provided they purchase their tickets together and travel together at all times. Discounted tickets cannot be used for any other ticket type or in conjunction with any other promotional offer, discount or free ticket.

Please be aware that Wheelchair Users may need to travel on some trains in the Guard’s Van.

This information about the Carer Free ticket is valid only up to 24th March 2024. From the 25th March 2024,, the Essential Companion Scheme will replace the Carer Ticket. If you will visit us from 25th March onwards, please read the information further down this page about the Essential Companion Scheme.

Please note that this section’s list of evidential documentation will not be accepted at our station ticket offices or via our customer service team from the 25th March.

Persons who are unable to visit the Railway without a Carer

Visitors who are only able to visit us with the assistance of a carer may claim a Free Carer’s Ticket for their carer, provided they purchase a standard full-priced Adult, Concession or Child Rover or Full Line ticket (as applicable) for themselves. In order to claim the Free Carer’s Ticket the disabled visitor (or the carer, on behalf of the disabled passenger) must present one of the following items of documentation, in the name of the disabled passenger:

• Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance award letter (dated within the last 12 months).
• Personal Independence Payment letter (dated within the last 12 months).
• An English National Bus Pass showing the +1 / +C logo (to indicate the cardholder may travel with one other person)
• Letter from GP or consultant (dated within the last 12 months) confirming the need for a full-time carer. This does not need to be a letter of diagnosis.

A carer must be over 16 years of age and capable of assisting the visitor who has a disability.

Please note that each disabled visitor must provide the documentation above, and we cannot issue a Free Carer’s Ticket without seeing one of the above documentation items.

Free Carers Tickets cannot be used if the disabled passenger uses any other ticket type or free ticket. The Free Carers Ticket is available for some special events but not on special trains such as Elf Explorer, Catering or Flying Scotsman.

Booking Carer Free tickets in advance

Discounted tickets for Wheelchair Users cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, including the Rover advance pricing promotion.

If you wish to claim a Free Carer Ticket and take advantage of the Rover advance pricing promotion for the other passengers in your group – Book an Adult / Concession / Child ticket, as appropriate, for the person who is being cared for (and anyone else in your party who is travelling with you). Do not book a ticket for the Carer.

When you have made your booking, please email, quoting your booking reference number, and say you wish to add a Free Carer Ticket to your booking. You will need to email us a picture or scanned copy of one of the evidential documents noted above in order for us to verify your entitlement. We will then add a Free Carer Ticket to your booking. We will be unable to add a Free Carer Ticket to your booking if you do not send us the required proof of entitlement.

Nimbus Disability – Access Card

We are proud to partner with Nimbus Disability, operators of the Access Card scheme, who will now process all requests for ‘Essential Companion’ (previously ‘Carer’) eligibility.

Nimbus Disability will individually assess your needs, with the help of your supporting documentation and statements through their detailed application process, to determine if you qualify for a complimentary Essential Companion Ticket. They will handle all your details safely and securely without us ever viewing the reason why you require additional assistance.  

Visit the Accessibility Page to find out more about the Essential Companion Scheme and how to apply here.

The Railway is pleased to welcome all dogs and their owners onto our normal timetabled trains, subject to their owners ensuring that their dogs do not cause a distraction to the operation of the train or inconvenience and difficulties to fellow passengers. In addition, dogs are not allowed onto carriage seats.

In the opinion of the Station Master or Guard, if a dog is not in the control of its owner and is causing problems, the Station Master or Guard may, at their discretion, request the dog be taken away from the Railway’s premises or removed from the train at the next available station or be cared for by its owner in a more appropriate area away from other passengers.

However, dogs are NOT allowed in carriages where food is served, for example, the Haworth Haddock dining train, nor on our more premium events such as the Elf Explorer. If in doubt, please contact our Customer Service staff at Haworth Station, 01535 645214.

We recognise that these dogs provide valuable assistance, not only for the sight-impaired but also for those with hearing loss, epilepsy, diabetes, physical mobility problems and more. Assistance Dogs are welcome on ALL KWVR trains, for which no charge is made.

Assistance Dog Ticket: FREE

Staff from the Railways listed below should show their Staff ID Card to obtain the reduced prices. Discounts are not available to people who are just members and not staff, so membership cards on their own are not proof of entitlement. Valid Staff ID cards must be shown
