EMT are making big changes to their Peak Time Services between Bedford and London St Pancras in May 2018.

No EMT trains will call at Bedford for London St Pancras, between the 05:38 & 10:13 trains. The first EMT service to call is the 10.13.

PM Peak
No EMT trains departing London St Pancras between 16.00 and 19.00 will call at Bedford.

Off Peak
The New Timetable brings 40/50 minutes gaps between EMT trains

The Bedford Commuters Association aims to promote and protect the interests of commuters and local rail users travelling to and from Bedford Midland and Flitwick Stations.  We aim to work closely and co-operatively with representatives of the Train Operation Companies, Thameslink Great Northern (GOVIA) and East Midland Trains, and with local government and other bodies with an interest in local rail matters.

The Bedford Commuters Association (BCA) was established in 1973. As an officially recognised body we hold regular meetings with East Midland Trains and Thameslink Great Northern (GOVIA). These Train Operators Companies actively consult us for our views on proposed timetable changes. Among the issues regularly addressed are: safe and secure station car parks, ease of buying a ticket, station and on-train security, over-crowding, reliability, staffing levels and improved customer care.
We lobby the Train Operating Companies, local MPs etc. for improvements to service & infrastructure, and the relevant Local Authorities for better local public transport integration between bus and rail services. We publish Newsletters three or four times a year to keep you informed of our activities. Our strength and influence is directly related to our membership numbers, so please renew or join the BCA.
