Go-Ahead has been committed to delivering the best services to our rail passengers since the privatisation of rail in the 1990s.
We provide rail passenger journeys in the UK across the Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) consisting of Great Northern, Thameslink, Gatwick Express and Southern.
The UK rail market is respected across the world and considered the safest railway network in Europe. We strive to deliver a safe, reliable and pleasant service to millions of commuter, leisure and business travellers.
With four train companies under the Govia Thameslink Railway franchise, GTR is responsible for 24% of all UK rail journeys.
Initially created to deliver change through the Thameslink Programme, GTR took over the services of both Thameslink and Great Northern in 2014. Southern and Gatwick Express brands joined the franchise in 2015.
The network itself covers major London terminals, such as London Victoria, London Bridge and London St Pancras, as well as extending the network as far north as King’s Lynn and south to Brighton.
GTR, alongside our rail partners, has brought in new infrastructure technology, trains and an expanded Thameslink network, which is delivering a step-change in customer experience. More improvements continue with enhanced smart ticketing technology and better stations.
