Rail operators in the South East are urging travellers to stagger their journey times to help social distancing, as more peak-time trains are set to be introduced from next week.
An adjusted timetable will be brought in from Monday 6 July, and will include longer trains between the Sussex coast and London Victoria in peak hours.
But Southern and Thameslink rail operators are asking people to avoid travelling during the busiest times of between 0600 and 0730 to help with social distancing.
They are also asking travellers to wear a mandatory face covering, to book tickets online or use contactless payments and to carry hand sanitiser and to wash hands before and after travelling.
Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) Chief Operating Officer, Steve White, said: “We are working with business organisations, and other stakeholders, to respond to the easing of lockdown measures but capacity remains limited by social distancing so, where possible, customers should avoid the busiest times of the day which are now between 6am and 7am.”
