Thirteen bidders have won up to £50,000 as part of a fund set up to improve station and service accessibility by Northern.
It was established to help local communities to make decisions about accessibility needed for rail users who feel isolated or excluded.
Funding was distributed for schemes to install tactile wayfinding signs for people with visual impairments, immersive maps for people with autism, and days out on the railway for students with special educational needs.
The successful bids were chosen by the independent Northern Accessibility User Group (NAUG) and supported by Northern.
Other projects will focus on station improvements such as fitting handrails, ramps, and automatic doors.
Commercial and customer director at Northern, Mark Powles, said: “Our customers are the heart of everything we do, and we are dedicated to making Northern’s services accessible to everyone, and to having a positive impact for the north.
“I am happy to announce that 13 bids have been successful, and I would like to thank everyone who got in touch with us with their ideas.
The fund is part of our wider project to transform our network and encourage people to use public transport – no matter their circumstances.”
