Chiltern Railways;

Chiltern Railways, along with the rest of the rail industry, are working to support efforts to minimise the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for necessary travel.

As a result, Chiltern Railways are operating an amended timetable, you can download the timetable here.

Please follow the latest advice from government and public health officials and please continue to keep services clear for those who need them the most.

If it is necessary for you to travel by National Rail, you must wear a face covering (unless you are exempt), try to travel off-peak, keep a 2-metre distance from others, and carry hand sanitiser or wash your hands.

What advice and information is available on crowding and social distancing?

Social distancing measures mean capacity on board Chiltern Railways services has been significantly reduced. Please try to travel off-peak between 10:00 and 16:00 and after 19:00.

More advice from Chiltern Railways, including refund information can be found here.

More information, including a Q&A and refund details can also be found on the NRE Coronavirus page.
