Disabled and Special Needs Travellers at London Heathrow Airport

disability services at Heathrow AirportIf you require assistance at the bus station go to stand number 6 and use the telephone there.  It is signposted HELP BUS. There is also a help point if you need help to reach terminals 1, 2 and 3.  Again this is in the bus station on the way to the underground system.

Most local buses do have low level floors, but coaches (particularly long distance) tend not to have any facilities, so it is worth checking before you travel and booking assistance whenever you can.
