With over one million visitors expected to descend on the capital every day during the Games and more people than usual choosing to travel by train, we have made significant changes to the timetable.
Services will be busier than usual so passengers should plan their journeys in advance and select here for up to date travel information
Our services are likely to be busy across the line, especially between 7am and 10am and 4pm and 7pm on weekdays.
It is expected that Chiltern Railways services will be busy in and out of London on dates when there are football events at Wembley Stadium and unticketed Games events.
Wednesday 1, Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 August are travel ‘hotspots’ when high volumes of passengers are likely to travel due to Wembley events and unticketed Games events.
As a result, there will be a significantly different timetable in place during the evening peak service on these days. This will involve additional stops at Wembley Station.
As services may be busier than usual, passengers should plan their journeys in advance and check the website for information about changes to the timetable.
There are also unticketed Games events taking place on 9 and 10 August in London. As a result, there are likely to be large numbers of spectators travelling to and from London.
Our services are likely to be very busy. If you are a regular commuter, you may find that your train is busier than usual.
Travel hotspots: Weekends
Weekend services on the 27, 28 and 29 July and 12 August are also likely to be busy due to Global Gathering music festival taking place in Long Marston, Warwickshire, football matches at Wembley Stadium and unticketed Games events. Passengers should plan their journeys in advance and ensure that they leave sufficient time for their journey.
Ensure that you plan onward travel arrangements in advance. London Underground is likely to be exceptionally busy at certain times. Check Transport for London for underground services and local bus routes before you travel at Marylebone station.
Select here for Games events
There will be a Games information point at Marylebone station to assist passengers with their onward journeys.
For event ticket holders who require mobility assistance, Transport for London will be running a complimentary shuttle bus which will run between London Marylebone, Paddington and King’s Cross.
