c2c introduces reduced timetable from Monday 23 November

From Monday, c2c will introduce a new timetable with reduced services due to staffing shortages as a result of the pandemic.

The train network has focused capacity in this new timetable around current travel patterns. This means it is only making limited reductions to:

  • Early morning services, which are now busier than late-morning trains. In particular, increasing capacity on the earliest trains of the day
  • Late-afternoon trains, as these are now typically busier than services leaving London after 18.00
  • School trains to Southend in the morning peak, with five successive 12-car trains now arriving in Southend between 07.20 and 08.40

c2c is reducing the frequency of off-peak and late-night services more heavily, as these trains now have the lowest customer demand.

However these will be 8-carriage services, to maximise the space available onboard.
