Train Safety

Prams and strollers

If you are travelling with a pram or stroller, we recommend you either strap the infant into the pram/stroller, or remove the infant from it completely to board the train. Here are some other safety tips:

  • Always keep a firm hold of your pram anywhere on stations and trains
  • Always apply pram brakes when you are at the station or on the train
  • Ensure your child is securely strapped into the pram
  • Park the pram parallel to the edge of the platform, not pointing towards the tracks
  • Board the train near the guard’s compartment so they can see you when closing the train doors
  • Don’t rush – allow plenty of time for your journey
  • Mind the gap between the platform and the train doors
  • If you require assistance, please ask Sydney Trains staff – they are there to help you.
