ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM STRATFORD
In May 2015, Transport for London (TfL) took over the operation of the stopping services from Stratford station. New TfL Rail trains are gradually being introduced between Shenfield and Liverpool Street.
When the full route opens, passengers will be able to travel through central London.
At peak times 12 Elizabeth line services an hour will run between Shenfield and central London, calling at all stations. An additional four services an hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street mainline station, westwards in the morning peak and eastward in the evening peak.
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.
