Picture of a hand holding a ticketSoutheastern

Since 2006 we have been running the train service between London and Kent and parts of East Sussex. We serve 179 stations and carry nearly 600,000 passengers on more than 2,000 train journeys every week day. 

We have around 400 trains, and our network covers over 1,000 miles of track. Overall we provide around 170 million individual journeys each year.

We also run the UK's only high speed train service on our 'Javelin' trains - named to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics and the key role we played in getting spectators to and from the Olympic park at Stratford.

We employ nearly 4,000 people - mostly from the communities that we serve.

Southeastern is owned by Govia, a joint venture between the Go-Ahead Group (65 per cent) and Keolis (35 per cent).
