We advice you check your journey before traveling with us today
There is a good service across our network
From Sunday 15 December 2019 the times of trains will be changing, we’ll be running more services on key routes and many journey times will be faster.
To find out more please visit our New Timetable page.
To help support these improvements, Network Rail will be carrying out several projects this Christmas, so we need to make some changes to the way you travel with us over the Christmas period.
* GWR will not run any train services on Wednesday 25 or Thursday 26 December
If you’re planning to get away for Christmas, we recommend doing so by Monday 23 December.
This is before the rail improvement work starts, so there will be more trains running and your journey won’t be affected by diverted services, additional changes or replacement buses.
If you do need to use a rail replacement service, these will usually depart from the front of the station.
There will be staff on hand to help you, and the buses or coaches are timed to connect with your train service.
However, bikes and large items of luggage cannot be carried on rail replacement services.
We’ll work with local bus operators to provide you with further options. We’ll update this section with more details soon.
Rail improvement works sometimes mean a reduction in car parking spaces. This can be because of heavy machinery, or to allow rail replacement buses to run.
We’ll update this section once our plans have been finalised.
We use a mix of low-floor buses and non-accessible coaches to run our replacement services.
If you are not able to travel on one of our services, we will arrange an accessible taxi for you free of charge.
Let us know in advance if you need help. To find out more, visit GWR.com/AssistedTravel.
