The seven National Rail stations serviced by the Croydon tramlink are:
All access to trams is step-free. The design of the trams makes for easier access for wheelchair users. There are two dedicated wheelchair spaces in each tram. Next to each wheelchair space is a specially sited intercom which allows direct speech to the driver in an emergency, an easy reach stop request button is set at an accessible height. Wheelchair users do not need to user ramps or any other special features to board. Tram travel is free for wheelchair users irrespective of whether or not they hold a freedom pass. To assist blind passengers and people with visual impairments, each stop has a tactile strip along its entire length, a safe distance from the platform edge. There are priority seats for elderly and disabled people, or those traveling with small children, in each section of the tram and plenty of easy to reach stop request buttons. The name of the next stop will be announced as the tram leaves the previous stop.
