Priority seat card

Get a priority seating card for your Thameslink train journey if you’re elderly, disabled, pregnant or travelling with an infant.

Help if you need a seat

Do you struggle to stand on the train, but feel awkward asking someone to give up their seat?

If you’re pregnant, disabled, over 65 or have a child under 3 you could be entitled to a free priority seat card.

There are priority seats on all of our trains, usually near the doors and marked with a ‘P’ sign.

Simply show the card to someone sitting in one of these priority seats to make it clear you need the seat.
