Disabled in Copenhagen

Copenhagen for disabled

In Copenhagen, it is easy to get around, also for people who have limp impairments or need the service of a wheelchair.

How to get around with public transportation?

All metro stations are easy accessible and are all equipped with either elevators or lifts.

All S-train stations either have an elevator or are accessible without stairs. If assistance is needed to get on and off the S-trains, please present yourself at the front carriage, from where a loose slope is available. Signal to the train driver that you wish assistance and tell at which station you wish to get off. The driver will then help you get on and off the train. 

If you are traveling with the regional train, including back/forth from Copenhagen Airport, you may need assistance to get on and off the train. Such assistance can be booked by contacting below. Please note that you must book the necessary assistance two days in advance, at:

DSB Handicap Service
Phone: (+45) 70 13 14 19
Open every day 08.00 - 15.00 (8am - 3pm)

Most, but unfortunately not all stations have an elevator/lift or are accessible without stairs. Please contact DSB (+45) 70 13 14 15 to make sure the station you are travelling to or from is accessible for wheelchair users. If you have an identity card, you can get a discount on the train ticket, whether you travel alone or with a helper.

Most buses have a collapsible slope by the middle doors. You will find a special call button on the right outside by the doors. Push this button in order to get the driver to unfold the slope. Please observe that the driver will not provide personal assistance with getting on and off the bus. 

All taxis accept collapsible wheelchairs. 

If you use a non-collapsible wheelchair, please call (+45) 43 55 00 29 for a special minibus, designed to help wheelchair users. They can be booked for several days if you wish to have a permanent transportation during your stay. 

If you would like to rent a coach for a longer period or you need transfer to and from the airport, this can be arranged by the company "Handicap Befordring". Write them your request at kontakt@hbbus.dk.
