Public Transport

Buses and coaches

Stansted Airport is well served by buses and coaches, but the majority of vehicles serving the airport are not currently wheelchair-accessible. Most services will be able to carry a folded wheelchair, as long as passengers can board unaided. Please contact the relevant operator for further information.

  • The coach station is close to the terminal and accessed via ramps and lifts or by escalator. The coach station waiting room, ticket office and toilet are all accessible to wheelchair users.
  • Tickets may be purchased from the waiting room office, at the coach desks in the terminal (between 06:00 and 02:00), or on board.
  • For details of services, see our buses and coaches page or call Traveline on 0845 850 0150.
  • If you require a wheelchair or assistance from the coach station, please ask a member of staff or use one of the help points.

Trains

The rail station is directly below the terminal building and reached via ramps, lifts or escalators. Train access for wheelchair users is via a portable ramp and assistance will be provided by National Express staff.
