Govia Thameslink Railway brings together the Gatwick Express, Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink railways.

In 2018, a Govia Thameslink Railway company will carry over 22% of all passenger rail journeys in the UK.

Govia Thameslink Railway operates 20% of the rolling stock in the UK. Its fleet includes a variety of electrical and diesel rolling stock. However, the company is investing heavily in the rolling stock, infrastructure and technology on all its lines, in order to deliver more services. More trains, more seats, more services, more routes, more station improvements, and more information.

In addition, Govia Thameslink is is investing £10million in training and development. This includes ILM accreditations, engineering apprenticeships, graduate placements, and a wide range of learning opportunities for all Thameslink team members. The company employs more than 7,000 members of staff across the four railway brands it operates in the South East of England.

Govia Thameslink Railway has a seven-year franchise, during which time the company intends to deliver on a number of ambitious projects, including:

  • Modernise the railway to make it easier to use
  • Improve the reliability and capacity of our trains
  • Make our staff more available on trains and in stations
  • Use new technology to keep passengers informed and simplify ticket buying
  • Improve the on board and station environment

In 2017, Govia Thameslink Railway introduced a ‘KeyGo’system which enabled holders of ‘the key’ smartcard to ‘pay as you go’. The company also recruited additional train drivers throughout the year, with a target of reaching a total of 390 qualified Thameslink drivers by 31 Dec 2017.

In 2018, Govia Thameslink will reopen London Bridge station and complete the introduction of more than 150 new Class 700 trains. This will mean an increase of up to 24 trains per hour – each way – through the core of the Thameslink network. As a result, passengers will wait no more than 2 to 3 minutes at peak times on the most popular routes through London and the South East.
