Southeastern is working to support efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus and to keep their train services running for essential travel. Always check before you travel

From Monday 23rd March a reduced timetable will be introduced until further notice to ensure that vital train services for key workers can keep running throughout a prolonged coronavirus outbreak. Wherever possible they will ensure that early morning and late evening services remain in timetables so that key workers like nurses, police officers and firefighters can get to work.

All their stations will remain open, and on some routes passengers may need to change trains to complete their journeys.

Passengers should check before they travel using online journey planners and the amended timetable will be available in online journey planners by Sunday 22 March.

Face coverings must be worn.

A map of the planned service can be found on their website
