This guide shows how busy each train is during the morning peak into London, and out of London in the evening peak. Simply select your station and your travel time below to see your options. You’ll often find that if you’re able to adjust your travel time slightly, you may have a more comfortable journey.

Please note this tool shows how busy the train is at its busiest point – typically arriving into/departing from West Ham station – rather than how busy the train is at your selected boarding station.

TfL has also advised us that West Ham station is particularly busy for passengers interchanging to tube and DLR services there between 05.45 – 08.15. You can check quiet times to travel on TfL’s website here.
