Transport of persons with reduced mobility, using wheelchair, on the International lines of Hellenic Train

We would like to inform you, that due to infrastructure works, passengers’ transport on certain sections of the above-mentioned International Train Services, is substituted up to the Greek border by Hellenic Train's buses. Due to this, the transport of persons with reduced mobility, using a wheelchair is temporarily not possible on the International lines of Hellenic Train.

Furthermore, according to respective information from our neighboring Railway Undertakings, transport of persons with reduced mobility, using a wheelchair in the above-mentioned International Train Services is also not possible due to the absence of adequate infrastructure for embarking or disembarking to and from the trains at the stations served by these international trains in our neighboring countries.
