Passengers with reduced mobility

Travelling on the Ferrovia Vigezzina Centovalli is an experience to be recommended for passengers with reduced mobility too: enjoy the tranquillity and immerse yourself in the special atmosphere on our narrow-gauge railway, the idyllic countryside, and the colours of nature which change with the seasons.

 

In Italy

In Italy, only people who hold a relevant ID issued by the state (e.g. Carta Blu) may travel as passengers with reduced mobility. Regional or local IDs do not confer entitlement to use services for passengers with reduced mobility.

Persons accompanying passengers with a valid ID travel free of charge. Guide dogs also travel free.

A person with reduced mobility travelling alone requires a valid train ticket.

Each Ferrovia Vigezzina-Centovalli train composition has a wheelchair space. On coaches with steps, our staff assist wheelchair users with boarding and alighting using a lifting ramp. This service is available at the stations in Domodossola, Santa Maria Maggiore and Locarno. To use the assistance service, please register at least 48 hours before starting the journey, either via e-mail at info@vigezzinacentovalli.com or by telephone on +39 0324 242055.

Only prior registration will ensure the assistance service and the subsequent journey.

In Switzerland

In Switzerland, passengers with reduced mobility must hold a relevant ID card for travellers with a disability, and this must be shown upon request, in order to use the associated services. Passengers with reduced mobility may also bring their guide dog free of charge in 1st or 2nd class.
