ScotRail is urging passengers in the north-east to take advantage of its improved assisted travel facilities.
Customers previously needed to book at least three hours before travelling. However, that has now been reduced to two – making ScotRail the fastest at delivering assisted journeys in the UK.
The free service is open to all, from wheelchair users to those with large items of luggage.

ScotRail’s access and inclusion manager Andrew Marshall-Roberts said: “We’re committed to making the railway accessible for all and the assisted travel service is just one of the ways we’re doing this.
“We aim to provide assistance to anyone who needs help when travelling on our network, whether this has been booked in advance or not.
“By reducing the notice period to two hours, customers now have more freedom.”
