On board CrossCountry trains, we have designated priority seating designed to be easily accessible by those who need them. All passengers may sit in these seats, but when required should be offered to anybody who needs them as a priority. This may include disabled people, pregnant people, elderly passengers, or passengers carrying an infant.

Please remember that not all disabilities are immediately visible and any passenger may require priority seating.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the availability of priority seating on any given journey as priority seating is available to all passengers. Where possible, we encourage passengers to offer their priority seat to those who need them

If you have specific travel needs, you can reserve a seat when booking your ticket, or by requesting travel assistance.
