Individual travellers who depend upon a wheelchair, maximum 1 for train, do not require a converted railway carriage (wheelchairs may not be wider than 60 cm and also not electric). Our railway staff will assist with boarding and alighting from the train. We do not guarantee complete accessibility in the intermediate stations of San Nicolao and Bellavista.
Notification of the special transport must be given at least two days in advance.
For people with mobility difficulties the departure is possible from the Capolago station and from the summit.
One specially converted carriage is available for passengers with a disability who wish to travel to Monte Generoso in a group. Accompanying persons can travel with them in comfort.
Please take note of the following:
Summit and "Fiore di pietra"
The Monte Generoso Railway has always enabled people of all abilities to access the summit and Fiore di pietra, with a carriage designed to transport wheelchair users and accompanying carers.
Holders of a disabled passenger’s ID card (see https://www.sbb.ch/en/timetable/travel-advice/passengers-with-reduced-mobility/travel-discounts.html) (companion card) are entitled to be accompanied by a person who can provide support during the whole journey. If the disabled traveller has a valid travel document (full fare ticket, GA ticket or half-fare ticket), the travel companion travels free of charge or vice versa. NB: Under no circumstances can both passengers travel free of charge.
