Accessibility Policy for DART, Maynooth, Cork and Northern Commuter

Iarnród Éireann has a new improved zonal accessibility policy to provide a better service and quicker response times for DART, Maynooth, Cork and Northern Commuter and Dublin Connolly to Balbriggan accessibility users. This policy divides the 31 stations on the DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter line into 13 zones, with each zone including between one to four stations. For the Cork Commuter line, 10 stations are divided into one zone. One station in each zone will always manned (a Hub station) and will provide support to other stations in that zone (Non Hub stations).

Hub System Explained

  • A Hub station is a manned location / a Non Hub station is an unmanned location
  • A Hub station may be contacted in advance to arrange assistance for all mobility impaired passengers, alternatively contact can be made our Customer Care centre
  • Contact details are displayed in the booking hall (please see example from Bayside below) for the nearest Hub, more details can be found below.
  • In the event a mobility impaired passenger that requires assistance arrives at an Non-Hub location without advance contact, the displayed numbers of nearest Hub or Alternative may be contacted where the rail operative will arrange and travel to provide assistance

Useful Information

Passenger Assistance Prototype App

We are now exploring a new way our customers can book assisted travel services through a prototype app that has the potential to improve the experience for all, delivering a more streamlined and efficient passenger assistance service. We are currently looking for passengers to test this prototype. See here for more details.

Aural and Visual

All DART stations have electronic information screens and/or public address announcements.

Car Parking

Not all DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter stations have parking, please check your station before travelling. For stations with car parks, they have designated car parking spaces for European Parking Card holders. They are provided at a convenient location on a concrete or tarmac surface, with dropped kerbs and non-slip pavements where appropriate.  


All DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter stations have automated ticket barriers with at least one wider gate for wheelchair users or others who may need it. One gate always remains open when stations are unmanned.

Guide Dogs

Guide/Assistant dogs working and in training are permitted to travel on all Iarnród Éireann services without restriction, as long as they are always clearly identifiable by coat or harness.


Our staff will use ramps to help you on or off our trains if required. 4 hours advance notice is recommended to ensure staff can be redeployed to assist you on or off our services.

At some stations there is a gap between the platform and the carriages which may create difficulty for people who are visually impaired or have mobility impairments and assistance may be required when boarding or alighting from the train.

Wheelchairs and Powered Scooters

We can accommodate wheelchair or powered scooters up to 700mm in width and 1200 mm long (including footplates) height 1435mm including occupant a maximum weight of 300kg including occupant and a turning radius of 900mm.

For safety reasons if your wheelchair or mobility scooter is larger that the permitted dimensions, we cannot accept it as the wheelchair or scooter may not be able to turn corners on board the train.

As scooters come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, many have problems on trains, being unable to manoeuvre safely inside a carriage.

These problems mean that trains cannot carry some scooters, if you are a scooter-user who wants to travel by rail, you should inform your departure station when contacting them to ensure your scooter can be accommodated.
