Accès Plus Transilien service

This free service helps people with disabilities and wheelchair users in the station.

We offer Accès Plus Transilien in 70 train stations. This is a dedicated support service from the station to the train, and from the train to the station entrance. Wheelchair users can use a mobile ramp that our employees will set up for getting on and off the train. Accès Plus Transilien is available for occasional trips and regular travel, from the first train to the last train, between any two stations offering the service. For RER lines A and B, this service is coordinated with the service offered by RATP, to ensure an end-to-end trip between a Transilien station and an RATP station.

Accès Plus Transilien is available for:

  • Wheelchair users

You should reserve the night before your trip, before 8:00 PM at the latest, by contacting the Accès Plus Transilien call centre, by phone or by email.
By email:
reservation-mobilite@transilien-sncf.fr
By telephone:
+33(0)970 82 41 42 (lines open every day from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM)

By making a reservation, you are guaranteed that an employee will be there when getting on and off your train, and that a mobile access ramp will be provided to access the train if necessary.
 
If you should encounter a problem, the Call Centre can be reached 24/7 by calling +33 (0)970 82 41 42. If a passenger is having trouble, we'll help arrange another transport service. For example, we might offer access to Specialised Road Transport Service to take passengers to the nearest accessible station.

Train accessibility

Accès Plus Transilien in 70 stations
Even in stations with Accès Plus Transilien, getting aboard the train is not always easy. In order to deal with this problem, we have implemented adapted solutions:
- In some stations, the vertical gap between the platform and the train has been reduced to less than 10 cm.
- In 70 stations where there is a vertical gap between the platform and the train of less than 28 cm, a service is available upon reservation for getting on and off the train. This service is called Accès Plus Transilien.

Accessible Transilien Quick Ticketing Machines

In 316 stations
Work has been in progress since 2012 to make the Transilien Quick Ticketing Machines accessible. This affects all of the Transilien Quick Ticketing Machines already lowered for wheelchair users or persons of short stature. Studies are under way to make them accessible for those with sensory and mental disabilities. We are working, for example, on adaptations such as a more prominent coin slot, a receptacle with Braille and adapted lighting, speech synthesizers, and raised black screen contours.

Special equipment for visually and hearing impaired persons

In 112 stations To ensure the safety of visually impaired passengers, tactile warning strips are placed along the platform edge on the side where trains pass. They give a tactile warning that the edge of the platform is near. A program is also under way to also place them at the top of stairs and when approaching ramps.
