ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM STRATFORD

In May 2015, Transport for London (TfL) took over the operation of the stopping services from Stratford station. New Class 345 trains are in use between Shenfield and Liverpool Street. The majority are currently seven-car long, with an upgrade programme due in the autumn of 2021 to increase these trains to nine-car (which is the full length of train for Elizabeth line services when it opens in the first half of 2022).

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.
