DART Accessibility Guide

The DART “Hub” system came into operation on Monday, 29th January 2018.  Instead of having staff at every station, there is a phone number to call for all the stations in a particular area. If you require assistance travelling on the DART you will need to phone the number of the Hub for your area. This new system is explained in more detail below with the Zone listing and phone numbers provided.

To make it easier to travel safely on the DART, ‘ZONES’  have been introduced to help people identify the most suitable station. Each ‘ZONE’ will include up to 3 stations, one of which will always be manned. Now you have your station number, whenever you are travelling from within a zone, you can call its number and have a conversation with the person who will be assisting you in travelling.

Station Opening Times

MON-FRI: 06.00-24.00

Guide to Traveling By Dart:

Once you know the station you’re travelling from, check to see what zone it’s in. Call the staffed station in that zone a recommended 4 hours before travelling and let them know you will be travelling from that station as well as the station you will be travelling to.

Once you arrive at the station just make yourself known to the staff so that you can arrange travel and the staff member will assist you and inform your destination station of your arrival.
