From ITV News.

 

A train company has launched a new service enabling disabled passengers to book travel assistance using voice commands.

Virgin Trains customers can request help getting on and off trains and reserve wheelchair spaces with Alexa-enabled devices.

The JourneyCare service for people with special requirements could previously only be booked by completing an online form or calling a helpline after train tickets were bought.

Alexa – a virtual assistant developed by Amazon – will speed up the process by allowing passengers to request assistance using voice commands immediately after purchasing tickets.
