30th October 2018
Thameslink and Great Northern have announced that an extra 200 weekday services will be introduced from Monday 10th December. Most services already in the timetable remain unchanged, and a further 32 peak and 170 off-peak services will be introduced.
These additional services mean that the number of daily services across the Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) will rise to around 3,600, an increase from the current 3,400.
Additional peak services will operate across the network from Cambridge, Peterborough, Brighton, St Albans, Horsham, Rainham, Luton, Orpington, East Grinstead, Bedford and on the Wimbledon loop. Elsewhere on the GTR network, most Southern and Gatwick Express services will remain unchanged and there will be no change to weekend services.
Steve White, Chief Operating Officer of GTR, said: “Many passengers will benefit from more frequent services thanks to 200 extra weekday services on Thameslink and Great Northern. I would like to thank our customers for their patience as these improvements have been phased in and thank our staff for their hard work making this happen.”
