Southeastern services reintroduced
We have been running a reduced timetable since Monday 10 January in response to an increasing number of Covid-related staff absences and government guidance to work from home where possible. The change enabled us to operate a more reliable train service and prevent as many short notice cancellations as possible.
We’re pleased that we’re now seeing an increase in staff availability which means we’re able to reintroduce more services again. From Monday 17 January a small number of extra trains are running, with the remainder of services restored by Monday 31 January.
Please check your journey using our online journey planner and thank you for your patience.
Our teams are working hard to make sure you can travel with confidence and we have a number of tools to help. Check how busy your train might be with our SeatFinder tools, contact us on WhatsApp or follow us on Twitter for the very latest travel information.
How busy is my train?
Our SeatFinder timetables allow you to check in advance how busy your train might be, allowing you to plan ahead and travel with confidence.
Using train loading data from the previous four weeks, you can quickly see which services are likely to be busy on your route, and which are a bit quieter.
SeatFinder timetables provide information for individual weekday services and includes most, but not all, of our trains. If there is no seat availability shown for your journey, it means information isn’t available for that train yet. We are working hard to bring you more information as soon as we can.
