Oslo is an easily accessible city whether you are in a wheelchair or with your baby in a stroller. Thanks to our info, you will not have problems traveling on most buses, trams, metro and even boats. Neither, nor will you have problems reaching the center of the airport.
AIRPORT CONNECTIONS - CENTRO
From the three airports, with the convenient local train of the NSB RegiontogYou can reach Sentralstasjon, which is the Central Train Station. Each car can safely transport wheelchair users. Each airport has many disabled facilities and toilets and numerous lifts. From the platform, those in a wheelchair will have no difficulty in embarking / disembarking
OSLO ACCESSIBILITY: METRO
Except for Frøen, all metro stations have ramps or lifts that lead to the train platform. All cars have a low floor, making boarding and landing quite easy.
In some stations, like Nationaltheatret, it is possible to have a little more difficulty for the level differences (not high, however) between the wagon and the quay. In fact, some points may be more accessible than others. For this reason, and for the greater space, ALWAYS INVITES to get on and off the doors located at the end and at the beginning of the car.
OSLO ACCESSIBILITY: TRAM
Wheelchair users can not use the 11,12 and 19 lines. Unfortunately, on these lines the old SL79 vehicles circulate that can not be used by people with reduced mobility. Instead, they can travel the pushchairs, always using the last door to the left of the driver.
SL95 trams, are recent vehicles, designed also for the transport of people with reduced mobility, thanks to the low floor. They are those operating on the 13, 17 and 18 lines. Each tram can carry a maximum wheelchair. It is always accessed from the central door.
OSLO ACCESSIBILITY: CITY BUS
All city buses have a low floor and are therefore accessible by wheelchair users. You enter and exit always from the middle doors. Before boarding and disembarking, you must notify the driver of the operation using the appropriate "wheelchair / wheelchair" button.
Each bus can carry a wheelchair or two pushchairs.
OSLO ACCESSIBILITY: AKERSHUS BUS
The vast majority of buses have a low floor and are easily accessible by people with wheelchairs. Exceptions are buses from / to Drøbak and some minor lines. In this case, they can still be used, subject to assistance from the driver, or possibly travelers. You always enter from the middle doors.
Also in this case, each bus can carry a wheelchair or two pushchairs.
OSLO ACCESSIBILITY: FERRIES
All the ferries of the B10 line between Nesodden and Aker Brygge are easily accessible from both ends.
The B11, B12, B20, B21 and B22 ferries can be used by wheelchair users thanks to a special ramp and crew assistance. In case of low tide or adverse weather conditions, access may be rather difficult. The crew on board will be able to provide all possible help.
The same goes for the B1, B2, B3 and B4 lines from / to the islands. Access is via mobile ramps and is quite complicated in the case of high or low tides. Gressholmen, being an island made up mostly of footpaths, is not ideal for strollers and wheelchairs.
For those who have problems with hearing and sight, we point out the following:
- all buses have screens that display the next three stops, and arrival time at stops.
- All means of transport have the announcements that declare the next stop.
- Several stops have signs in real time, with a text-to-speech solution.
For everyone, RuterReise is a fantastic app for iOS, with a text-to-speech solution. Thanks to this app, moreover, who travels in a wheelchair, can view the trams that have a low floor for easy boarding.
KANOA REMINDS THAT THOSE WHO TRAVEL ON A WHEELCHAIR TRAVEL FREE ON ALL THE TRANSPORTATION MEANS.
Anyone traveling with a stroller does not pay any supplement. Remember to use the appropriate doors for embarking / disembarking. It will be the parent's responsibility to check the stability of the stroller. He will be responsible for any damage caused to persons and / or things due to his negligence.
