From Monday 30 March - Gatwick Express suspended until further notice due to the ongoing coronavirus situation

Gatwick Express services will be temporarily suspended until further notice from Monday 30 March.

Gatwick Express are making this change in response to reduced passenger demand for the airport and to enable train drivers to be used on other services.

Southern and Thameslink are still running to and from Gatwick Airport and will continue to provide journey options to both London and Brighton.

*Please note some Southern trains will be running with Gatwick Express rolling stock during this period.

Buses replace trains between Crawley and Horsham – Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May

Engineering work is taking place between Crawley and Horsham, closing all lines.
