A reduced timetable will be implemented that reflects the current phase of the pandemic.

From Monday 16 November Southeastern will introduce a reduced timetable in response to the current phase of the 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 to self-isolate.

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.

A summary of the timetable changes will help you plan your journey:

The reduced timetable will run until further notice and is expected to be available in online journey planners from Thursday 12 November. A map of the planned service frequency will also help passengers plan their journeys.

Our teams are working hard to make sure that if you travel on our trains, you can travel with confidence. Please plan ahead and avoid travelling at busy times.

Scott Brightwell, Train Services Director for Southeastern, said:

“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.”
