Changes to off peak services this week (23 to 27 Nov)
Due to the very busy nature of our service, and poor punctuality during autumn, we have worked with Network Rail to temporarily remove a number of Gatwick Express services from the timetable to help reduce congestion on the network, so that a more reliable service can be provided overall. This will start on Monday 23 November, for a week’s trial. More details can be found on our Timetables page, and to check detailed journeys please visit www.nationalrail.co.uk
A normal off peak Gatwick Express and Thameslink service will resume on Monday 30 November
The amended off peak service trialled from 23-27 November did provide the network with some punctuality benefits. However, with the leaf fall season now drawing to a close, and train operating conditions improving, we will return to our normal off peak timetable from Monday 30 November, in advance of the permanent timetable change on Sunday 13 December.
The new timetable from 13 December includes the retention of four non-stop Gatwick Express services each hour between Gatwick Airport and London Victoria, two of which will be extended to Brighton in the off peak. New Thameslink & Southern timetables will also come into operation on 13 December. For more information go to: Southernrailway.com/december2015
No Gatwick Express services from 24 December to 4 January
A major programme of improvement work by Network Rail in south London this Christmas means there will be no Gatwick Express services over the holiday period. For full details of your options, please visit our Christmas and New Year services page.
Some Gatwick Express services may vary due to improvement works, especially during Sundays, so please take time to check the improvement works before you travel.
