Accessibility for all our passengers is important at Central Tramway. We recognise that the tramway offers a vital service to both locals and visitors to Scarborough navigating the steep incline from the seafront to town.

  • We offer free travel for registered carers travelling with their caree, please show your carer's identification for eligibility.

  • There is level access both on and off the carriages at the top and bottom stations, making both carriages fully wheelchair accessible.

  • Entrance and exit from the carriages at the bottom station is via a slightly sloped incline directly off the public footpath.

  • Entrance and exit from the carriages at the top station is through a gated entrance, where payment is taken.

  • Once inside the carriages there is space between the bench seating for both wheelchairs and electric mobility scooters.

  • Electric mobility scooters should be switched off and the brake applied during the journey.

  • Attendants at both the top and bottom stations are able to assist visitors with sight or hearing loss or impairment.

  • A hearing loop is fitted at the top station pay booth and can be used by our visitors with a hearing aid with a T facility.

  • A range of mobility scooters and powerchairs are available to hire from Scarborough Mobility a short distance from the top station. Visit their website to learn more:
