Increasing services from 16 May 

In line with the further easing of lockdown restrictions, on 16 May we introduced more services so you can continue to travel with confidence. 

Weekdays now see 244 more services each day, an increase of 19% on pre-May levels, bringing the number of services to 85% of pre-COVID levels as an average across our network.  

This increase sees us provide more than 18,000 extra seats into Waterloo during the morning peak, an increase of 31%. 

Weekend services remain close to pre-pandemic levels with 92% of services running on Saturdays, and 99% on Sundays. 

We’re continuing to carefully monitor passenger demand, matching our services and trains accordingly. 

As more people travel, there are likely to be times where trains will be busy. That is why we are asking you to plan ahead, spread down throughout trains to make use of all available space and consider travelling outside the peak. We’re making it easier for you to do so by providing information on our website about our busiest times to travel
