Reduced Timetable

Please note: From Monday 19 July Government guidelines have changed on social distancing and face coverings, please visit here for advice and guidance about your journey.
With the continuing need to run fewer but longer trains for the foreseeable future, this year we will not be operating the summer weekend train services to and from Newquay. Or the enhanced Saturday service to and from Paignton. For track improvement information and planned changes, please see the Travel updates page.

If you’re a regular train passenger, you’ll probably know your frequented route timetable off by heart but if you’re going somewhere new, it’s a good idea to check out your journey beforehand. Sussing out your train schedule will help you feel organised and allow you to plan ahead. Many of our trains will have additional carriages to maximise space on-board. We are also continuing with the increased dwell time at key stations, giving extra time for people to board and alight safely. To achieve this whilst maintaining the national railway timetable, a small number of stations have seen our services reduced or withdrawn to allow for additional time at heavily used stations.

If you are planning to travel with us, please travel with confidence. We are 'Good to Go' accredited which means that we are adhering to both government and industry COVID-19 guidelines to keep you safe during your journey. Don't forget to check out our travel guidelines before you travel to follow our simple steps to keep you and those around you safe whilst on-board.

Don’t forget, this summer Network Rail will be carrying out major improvement work at Bristol Temple Meads. Please see here for more information.
