Bus & coach services

Several bus and coach companies operate at Gatwick. On arrival, if you need assistance then use the special assistance help points.

Many local bus services are now low floor, and although long distance coaches tend not to be wheelchair accessible, most will carry your wheelchairs/frames if you are able to board the coach on your own.
