STATION UPDATE


ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM READING

When the full route opens, four Elizabeth line trains an hour (six an hour at peak times) will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains. Two Elizabeth line trains an hour (four an hour at peak times) will run between Maidenhead and Reading.

Fast services currently operated by Great Western Railway will be unaffected by the introduction of Elizabeth line services.

You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services. To find out which these are, see TfL's user guide or use the advanced options in Cycle Journey Planner.
