The accessibility to the underground Metro system is the result of the continuous improvement of infrastructures, equipment and facilities:

- On the A Line there are 39 trains in service with facilities for the disabled in wheelchairs, with loudspeaker stop alarms and automatic door opener systems;

- B Line trains are equipped with rubber barriers to secure intra-carriage spaces;

- 11 stops of the A Line, including the recently renovated Manzoni, are equipped with tactile paving and maps for the visually impaired, the remaining 15 stops with a stop code on the platforms, all elevators have Braille and raised numerals and voice announcements (Italian and English) of floor level.

- All the B Line stops are equipped with tactile paving and maps for the visually impaired, elevators have Braille and raised numerals and voice announcements (Italian and English) of floor level, whereas stairlifts are installed in the three stations devoid of lifts.

- All stations of the two lines will be upgraded to the standards of Manzoni station;

- Accessibility and safety is being redeveloped in the Termini area.
