Gatwick Express suspended as part of reduction in GTR services

Gatwick Express Class 387 train at Clapham Junction in December 2019.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) will temporarily suspend the Gatwick Express service from Monday 30 March as part of phased timetable changes agreed with government to maintain train services for key workers.

In addition, further reductions will be made to Southern, Thameslink, and Great Northern services from the same date.

However, there will still be several trains an hour to and from Gatwick, even without the Gatwick Express services.

Steve White, GTR.

Steve White, GTR’s chief operating officer, said: “In this national emergency, we and the rest of the rail industry are doing everything we can to keep essential services running for key workers on whom we all depend.

“These changes will release our staff to concentrate their efforts on keeping these essential services running. Thameslink and Southern trains will continue to serve Gatwick.

“Once again, I want to thank the key workers, the doctors, nurses, police and other emergency workers, for what they are doing for us all. I also want to thank railway colleagues who are working so hard to keep trains running.”
