Our commitment at Lumo is to delivering a consistent, high quality service, making journeys easy, convenient and above all ensuring that accessibility is at the forefront of each and every stage of the customer journey. Our aim is to ensure that the needs of customers, their companions and assistance dogs, requiring assistance are properly considered in all aspects of the customer journey, enabling them to travel confidently and independently.
We also recognise the importance of improving the accessibility of the rail network. We therefore work with other organisations across our network (including Network Rail and Station Facility Operators) to deliver accessibility improvements to facilities, systems and service delivery. Furthermore, we recognise the importance of implementing robust and customer focused processes that are consistent across the rail network and we will work proactively with stakeholders to achieve this goal.
