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.
