Starting December 15th 2019, TFL will be running trains to Reading when the lines switches over from Great Western Railway to become a part of TFL Rail. The change is a part of the over due switch to the Elizabeth Line. The Elizabeth Line will travel from Shenfield to Essex then to Reading via Central London once it finally opens estimated time 2021.
It’s not time to take out your Oyster Cards wanting a day trip to Reading as yet, because the Berkshire town is the end of the line and Oyster will not be able to take you thus far. You’ll will still need to buy a regular train ticket until January 2nd 2020, when you’ll be able to use contactless.
The new Tube map changes, also include recent new & improved works to disabled access and new step free icons on Gidea Park, West Hampstead, and White Hart Lane Stations. There is also new icons for TFL River Bus piers.
