New timetable from Monday 7 September

From Monday 7 September we have introduced a new timetable. Train times have changed and there are more frequent services on many routes. We’ve reworked our timetable to give you more space with longer trains on many services, adding over 900 extra carriages each weekday, providing 50,000 extra seats. Helping you to travel with confidence wherever you need to go.
To give you more choice and space, we’ve boosted our services up to 98% of our pre-COVID timetable.

Times are changing

From 11 October, we're making some small changes to our timetable this autumn to keep trains running on time. Each autumn, approximately 50 million leaves fall onto our train tracks, meaning our drivers need more time to stop and start the trains as the wheels have less grip on the tracks. You can learn more here about what we're doing to keep our services moving, you won't beleaf it.

High speed

  • More frequent services between London St Pancras and Faversham
  • London St Pancras to Ebbsfleet service frequency increases to 4 trains per hour
  • Reintroduction of full High Speed service frequency between Dover and Ramsgate 

Mainline routes via Ashford

  • London to Ramsgate (via Ashford and Dover) services will terminate at Dover, but will be replaced by High Speed services between Dover and Ramsgate

Mainline routes via Chatham

  • London Victoria to Dover services (via Faversham and Canterbury East) increase to 2 trains per hour
  • Gillingham to Faversham service frequency increases to 3 trains per hour
  • Sittingbourne to Sheerness frequency increases to 2 trains per hour

Medway Valley line

  • Strood to Maidstone West service frequency increases to 2 trains per hour
  • Most Tonbridge services will start / terminate at Paddock Wood – meaning you’ll need to change at Paddock Wood for Tonbridge and stations towards London

Metro routes

  • Charlton to London Bridge service frequency increases to 2 trains per hour
  • Dartford to Gravesend service frequency increases to 4 trains per hour
  • London Cannon Street services via Woolwich and Sidcup are reintroduced, running twice per hour
  • London Cannon Street services via Woolwich and Bexleyheath are reintroduced, running twice per hour 
  • Semi fast trains between London Charing Cross and Gravesend are reintroduced, meaning that the frequency of trains at New Eltham, Sidcup, Bexley and Crayford increases to 6 trains per hour

How busy is my train?

Our new SeatFinder Timetables tool allows 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 week, you can quickly see which services are likely to be busy on your route, and which are a bit quieter.  

Simply select your normal timetable from the list below to see how busy the services usually are. 

SeatFinder timetables provides 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.
