New timetable signals changes for trains on the Marston Vale Line

Getting off at Bedford St JohnsIn response to passenger feedback, as of Monday 18th May, the Marston Vale Line will run to a new timetable. This timetable contains several minor changes to most services on the line, which we hope that you will appreciate!

The most notable change is that the busy 0739 departure from Bletchley (arrive Bedford 0821) will leave Bletchley 5 minutes earlier (0734) Monday to Friday, and will run around 5 minutes early throughout the journey. This service has be re-timed to better serve passengers who are travelling to work or school in Bedford.

The majority of other services have also been re-timed to run either a few minutes earlier or later. This is to tackle long-standing confusion over varying train times on weekdays and weekends.

We therefore highly recommend that all passengers obtain a copy of the latest timetable to check to see if their train is affected. You can download a copy of the timetable by clicking on the link below. Alternatively, you can pick up a paper copy from either Bletchley or Bedford ticket offices, or call London Midland on 0845 602 4277 to have copy sent to you.
