Train timetables are going to change from Sunday 17th May

The public urged only to use public transport if there is no alternative
Passengers should follow the latest Government advice on how to travel safely
To manage social distancing, passengers may have to queue and should allow extra time

Uckfield will have early departures at 05:29, 06:33 and 07:33hrs and hourly thereafter. The last train from London Bridge will depart at 23:07hrs

Following the latest Government guidance for passengers on how to travel safely, Govia Thameslink Railway will be running a different Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern timetable from Sunday 17 May. The introduction of a new timetable means that services and train times will change and passengers will need to check before they travel at

This timetable will run until further notice and is available in online journey planners now.

The Government advice sets out that if people cannot work from home and have to travel for work, they should first consider alternatives to public transport. For those who have to use public transport, the guidance for passengers on how to travel safely recommends:

  • Keeping 2 metres apart from others wherever possible
    Wearing a face covering if you can
    Using contactless payment where possible
    Avoiding rush hour travel where feasible
    Washing or sanitising your hands before and after travel
    Following advice from staff and being considerate to others

To help maintain social distancing some extra services will be running and passengers may be asked to queue to enter some larger, busier stations. We advise that people leave extra time for their journeys. In the coming days, more information will be available as GTR finalises its plans.
