Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern have introduced a revised timetable across the network as the rail industry works together to manage and protect services for essential travel and key workers to get to and from their place of work.

**In line with government advice, you should only be travelling if you are a key worker or it is essential for you to do so. If you must travel, always practice social distancing.**

You are advised to check service updates online before making your way to the station for your essential journey. The amended timetable is available online up to and including Sunday 5 April. Future journeys will display in Journey planners by Saturday 4 April for the following week.

Live departure updates are provided on the Thameslink, Southern, and Great Northern websites, mobile apps and service update pages as soon possible, but the nature of the situation is that some services may be cancelled at short notice, due to staff members needing to stay at home unwell or in self-isolation.

Planned engineering work is also taking place over the forthcoming weeks which may affect late night and early morning trains. The alterations for these works and associated replacement buses are now reflected in journey planners.

Can I travel with another operator?

Southern, Thameslink & Great Northern tickets are valid on each other's trains until further notice.
