Like other public transport companies in Denmark Arriva offers assistance to disabled travelers. The range of stations from which such service can be requested is a contractual subject between Arriva and the Ministry of Transport.

List of stations is announced to the public on Arriva’s website.

To get the assistance you need identification in the form of either:

  • Ledsager-kort Danmark
  • membership card for “Dansk Blindesamfund”, or
  • membership card for “Synscenter Refnæs”

As a disabled person in Denmark you and your companion can travel at a reduced price, which is a 50 percent discount compared to the normal adult price.

To get the discount you can travel on “Rejsekort kundetype handicap” but also on a regular children’s ticket.

Which kind of ticket to choose depends on where you buy your ticket, choice of sales channel/issuing media at travelers discretion.
