To help you plan your journey and to avoid the busiest trains and stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve introduced measures to count the number of people boarding our morning and evening train services across our network.
Currently, our busiest times are morning and evening peak services. You can also view busy trends here. Please take this into account and travel on a quieter service where possible.

We have a reduced timetable in place at the moment, as passenger numbers are down significantly. We want to provide the most reliable service possible for key workers and others who need to use our trains. From Monday 18 May, we will be running two trains an hour to and from Stansted Airport and London Liverpool Street.
The revised timetables will be updated once a week, usually on a Wednesday or Thursday and published here.
More information on what Stansted Express is doing to keep rail passengers safe during Covid-19 can be found here. We encourage that you become familiar with the measures we have put in place so that we can stop the spread and safeguard people’s health.

Please book assistance a minimum of 12 hours before you travel. If your journey goes beyond our network and includes travel on other train operators' services, please book 24 hours before travelling so we can meet their notice period requirements.
Passenger assistance may change slightly from pre-pandemic assistance to maintain social distancing. For example, a customer might be wheeled in and out of the lift whilst the staff member uses the stairs. You can also still travel if you haven’t pre-booked assistance.
