More trains to Falmer in rail timetable shake-up

Rail passengers travelling to and from the University of Sussex campus are being promised a more frequent service from next month when “the biggest timetable shake up in rail history” takes effect.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) say there will be improvements on Southern and Thameslink routes from Sunday 20 May, when more than 3,000 train times will change.

On the East Coastway the number of trains between Brighton and Lewes will rise from five to six an hour, with increased stops at Falmer – the station that serves the University of Sussex campus.

A new timetable will be in operation on all routes from 20 May and the times of every train across the GTR network will change.

GTR chief executive Charles Horton said: “A huge number of passengers will notice the benefits in terms of new journeys, better intervals between trains, improved reliability and more capacity across a wide region.”

GTR urge passengers to check ahead as to how their journeys will be affected. View the new timetable that comes into effect from 20 May.
