Thameslink passengers are being asked to check before they travel when the updated winter timetable is introduced from Sunday 13 December 2020.
The train operator has said that in response to customer feedback and passenger demand, there will be additional peak-time services between Bedford and East Grinstead and between Orpington and Kentish Town to provide extra room on-board suburban services, and new journey options.
To prepare for the three-month partial closure of King’s Cross for essential upgrade work from March 2021, there will be a set of changes to Great Northern and Thameslink services using the station. Managing director of Thameslink and Great Northern, Tom Moran, said:
“If you need to travel then you can do so with confidence thanks to our intensive cleaning regime and long-lasting viruscide, so long as you remember to wash or sanitise your hands at each end of your journey, wear a face covering, and keep your social distance by using our online tools to avoid busy services.
“There will also be changes to train times across the network, so don’t forget to check before you travel at nationalrail.co.uk.”
The new timetables will be available to download from Thameslink’s website around the beginning of December.
