Keeping some distance

Limited bookings

We’re limiting the number of seats that we sell on most of our trains to help us keep some distance between passengers, to the extent possible. However, if you’re travelling on one of our busier trains, it’s possible that you’ll be seated next to someone.

Your seat will be assigned only as you board, and not when you book. Therefore, please ignore the seat number indicated on your boarding pass.
