What facilities are there for helping reduced mobility travelers?

In France, there is an “AccesPlus Service” available to help reduced mobility passengers in about 350 train stations. Their agents will meet you on arrival at the station and take you to your seat on the train (with a ramp if need be). They will accompany you when you disembark or transfer to another train.
