Thameslink introduces more through-London Saturday services for West Sussex, Surrey, and Croydon travellers
From Saturday 21 December, Thameslink will be providing two additional through-London services per hour between Horsham and Peterborough on Saturdays. This will give passengers along the route between Horsham and London more direct services into central London, St Pancras International station and beyond, helping passengers to make the most of their weekends.
For the first time, Coulsdon South, Merstham, Crawley, Ifield, Littlehaven and Horsham will have direct Saturday services to the City of London, St Pancras International and northward to Peterborough. East Croydon, Redhill, Horley and Gatwick Airport stations will gain two additional services per hour.
Central London stations between St Pancras International and London Blackfriars will see an increase on this popular weekend route from 11 to 13 trains per hour in each direction.
Thameslink is creating the new services by connecting existing Horsham to London Bridge services with its King's Cross to Peterborough services, through central London via Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras International.
Tom Moran, Managing Director for Thameslink and Great Northern, said: "We are delighted to be introducing these improvements for our passengers, because we know there is strong demand for these direct services to central and north London on Saturdays as well as during the week.
"This will provide more travel opportunities for existing and potential new passengers."
