ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM STRATFORD

Since May 2015, TfL has been operating the stopping services from Stratford station. Class 345 trains purpose-built for the Elizabeth line are in use between Shenfield and Liverpool Street. 

When the Elizabeth line is fully open passengers will be able to travel through to central London without having to change trains, however, from the railway’s launch in May 2022 until the autumn of 2022 you will need to change at Liverpool Street for Elizabeth line stations between Paddington and Abbey Wood. 

At peak times 12 Elizabeth line services an hour will run between Shenfield and central London, calling at all stations. An additional two services an hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street mainline station at peak times.

You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services. Read more on TfL’s Cycle on public transport page here.
