GETTING AROUND MALLORCA WITH A DISABILITY – ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORTATION

Mallorca has a wide variety of transit options available that can help those with a disability or are using a wheelchair. Many buses and taxis can accommodate those who require equipment to be shuttled around. There is an airport rail link that has very good facilities for disabled travellers.

When in Mallorca for a short time, one of the best ways to get around is to take one of the official tours of the island. This gives visitors a view of key geographic points, history and more.

Take public transport between resorts, but do not count on this as a main travelling source since bus service can be sparse. Instead, rent a car or hire a driver. 

Plane

Most airlines, including the low-cost ones, are flying to the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas and Palma de Mallorca airports. Wheelchair assistance is available upon request as are wheelchair-accessible shuttles.

Trains

Spanish Railways (RENFE) have special services called Atendo for those in wheelchairs and on mobility scooters. There are two primary railways in Mallorca which connect Palma to Manacor and Sa Pobla and both go by Inca.

ake the Soller Train for a slower but more scenic route on a vintage train. Palma’s train station is located in Placa d’Espanya with trains to Inca every hour.

A mere 35 minute trip to Inca will also include stops at Marratxi, Santa Maria de Cami, Consell, Binissalem, Alaro, Lloseta, Manacor and Sa Pobla. Amenities include a wheelchair lift, reserved seats for wheelchair users and companions, adapted restrooms, and an emergency call button.
