Chiltern Railways train at station

Chiltern Railways introduce new service to reduce congestion

Chiltern Railways have announced the introduction of an additional service at peak times to help tackle congestion for Buckinghamshire commuters.

The service will run from High Wycombe into London every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning providing extra seats for passengers.

The service will run non-stop leaving High Wycombe at 07:24 and arriving in London at 08:00.

The introduction of this new service is aimed at reducing the pressure on the 06:43 from Oxford which calls at High Wycombe at 07:30.

In recent weeks this service has become increasingly busy especially after calling at High Wycombe.

The introduction of the new service is an aimed intervention by Chiltern Railways to relieve pressure on critical peak morning services.

Chiltern Railways pointed out how the introduction of the new service will help the operator provide the best passenger experience possible.

Eleni Jordan, Commercial & Customer Strategy Director at Chiltern Railways said: “Chiltern Railways will continue to intervene where we are able to do so to provide the best possible experience for customers returning to the railway.

“Our rigorous data collection and monitoring system has flagged the 0643 as a really crowded train.

“I’m delighted that we’re able to add a new train to boost capacity during the morning peak.”

The new service is set to start on 9th November and will run until December.
