Can we help you get a seat?

We know from your feedback that having enough space to sit or stand on our peak trains is very important to you. You have pointed out that our trains are getting busier. We would like to tell you what we are doing in both the short term and long term, and explain the challenges involved in increasing train capacity.

  • We currently use all the train carriages available to us to run our peak services. We have a fleet of 80 trains, one to three of which are kept back for essential maintenance at any one time. 
  • Our train planners regularly review the timetable and monitor the number of passengers on each of our trains. 
  • We have created and shared information about the typical demand for each peak train service at your station via the tool above. These are aimed at giving customers an overview of how busy each peak train is at your station.
