Reduced Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink service

Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink are currently having to cancel trains at short notice owing to staff members requiring to stay at home unwell or self-isolate under the guidance issued by Public Health England.

Customer Advice:

The Government and the UK rail industry have agreed a planned reduction of train services across the country whilst keeping vital services running. In line with government advice, you should only be travelling if you are a key worker or it is essential for you to do so.

Running a reduced service also helps to protect the welfare of our colleagues, who are essential for day-to-day operations. Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink may have to cancel trains at short notice due to staff members being required to stay at home unwell or self-isolate under the guidance issued by Public Health England. This is possible throughout the coming weeks, but they will do all they can to plan for this. They update live departure boards, mobile apps and our service update pages for Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern as soon as they can.

The service plans listed below look to provide a useful timetable for key workers by ensuring all routes and stations receive a service.

If you must travel, always practice social distancing.

On Sunday 29 March:

A normal Sunday timetable is running today, except for routes affected by planned engineering works.

Between Uckfield and Oxted:
Due to the unavailability of train crew on this line, a two hourly service will be in operation until the end of the day. Please check before you travel to the station. If you find your train is cancelled, please delay travelling by an hour if possible.

If you are already at the station, please use the help point on the platform for further information.

Between Clapham Junction and Watford Junction:
Due to the unavailability of train crew on this route, a heavily reduced service will be in operation from 13:00, until the end of the day. You may need to use an alternative route in order to complete your journey.

Your ticket will be accepted on the following:

  • Southern between Clapham Junction and London Victoria
  • London Underground between London Victoria and London Euston
  • London Overground between Clapham Junction and Willesden Junction, also London Euston and Watford Junction

 

Plan ahead and check your journey before you travel here.

From Monday 30 March until further notice:

A revised version of the Sunday timetable will operate across the Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern networks. Many key workers need to attend work at unsociable hours, so the changes to the Sunday timetables will allow services to start earlier and finish later on some routes.

This timetable is available to view in online journey planners now for next week up to and including Friday 3 April, so you can start to plan your essential journeys. You are strongly advised to check again on the day you intend to travel in case there are further short notice changes.

Revised timetable for London Overground, TfL Rail and London Underground

TfL, along with the rest of the rail industry, are working to support efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for essential travel.

How will this affect my journey?

Making non-essential journeys risks lives. Only travel if your journey is absolutely essential.

If you are a key worker and your journey is absolutely essential, the busiest times are 05:45 to 07:30 and 16:00 to17:30.

If possible you may want to avoid travelling at these times, particularly on below parts of the network, as there may be some disruption to your journey:

  • Jubilee line between London Bridge and Stratford and Stanmore and Wembley Park
  • Central line between Epping and Stratford
  • Victoria line
  • District line between Upminster and West Ham
  • London Overground services into Liverpool Street
  • DLR to / from Canning Town, West Ham and Stratford

 

Some London Underground stations are also closing, this will ensure TfL staff keep the most used stations and services running to support critical workers. You can find a list of affected stations here.

On Friday and Saturday nights, there will be no all-night 'Night Tube' service or the all-night 'Night Overground' service that currently runs on the East London line. This is to ensure the resilience of the regular Tube and Overground services. Late services on both the Tube and Overground will continue to run for essential journeys.

The Waterloo & City Line remains closed.

Similarly until further notice, London Overground, the DLR and London Trams will run a reduced service.

More details can be found here.

More information can also be found on the National Rail Coronavirus page.

Reduced Southeastern service until further notice

Southeastern, along with the rest of the rail industry, is working to support efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for essential travel.

Until further notice, we are running a reduced timetable to ensure that vital train services for key workers can keep running throughout a prolonged coronavirus outbreak. All of our stations will remain open but on some routes passengers may need to change trains to complete their journeys. Wherever possible, we will ensure that early morning and late evening services remain in timetables; so that key workers like nurses, police officers and firefighters can get to work.

This national change has been made in agreement with the government and around half the usual number of trains will run. Enough capacity will be provided to allow passengers making essential journeys to follow the official guidance on social distancing.

The reduced service timetable balances the current significantly reduced levels of demand with the need to reduce the number of people required to run the network, which will help to ensure there are enough staff to keep services running over the coming weeks and months.

**Please follow the government advice, and only travel if your journey is absolutely essential**

Timetables

Timetables are available in Online Journey Planners, and a map of the planned service frequency for each line are available here.  Online Journey Planners will be updated every Friday morning for the following week.

There will be further reductions in service this weekend (Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March) and these changes are now showing in the Journey Planners, so please check then for specific service details.
