Trams with step-free access operate on most lines. Exceptions: On lines 9 and 13, at least every second tram is step-free. There are no wheelchair accessible trams on line 5. Important stops have departure indicators. The wheelchair symbol indicates vehicles without steps.


People with walking disabilities best enter at the front. This way the driver can see you better, leave the door open longer or help you if necessary. Persons in wheelchairs are best to use the third door from the front. There are places for wheelchairs. Press the blue wheelchair button if you need more time or you need help to get in or out of the vehicle.


Most stations are step-free. At stations that are not step-free, you can change to an alternative connection, get help from train staff or request a shuttle.
