South Eastern reduced timetable

South Eastern reduced timetable in response to the current phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Please see full statement below.


From Monday 16 November we will introduce a reduced timetable in response to the current phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This timetable reflects reduced passenger demand and the need for some frontline colleagues who keep our network running, to follow personal NHS advice and self-isolate.

Reduced timetable to keep service resilient during virus impact

The new timetable is designed to enable us to run a resilient service and will help prevent short notice cancellations, should more frontline colleagues be affected by the virus.

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continually monitored passenger numbers and responded with adjustments to our timetable. The slight reduction to services this winter will also ensure that the number of services better meets changed patterns of demand. Where necessary, further adjustments will be made to support social distancing on busier routes as part of our safer travel pledge to ensure that if you need to, you can travel with confidence.

This timetable will run until further notice and is expected to be available in online journey planners tomorrow, from Thursday 12 November. The map above provides a summary of the service reductions by route and larger version of the map can be found by clicking the image.
