Continuing your journey by bus

Most of our stations in the London area have good connections with Transport for London bus services. Visit www.tfl.gov.uk/buses for more information.

Local bus services outside of London also provide a frequent and convenient way of travelling to and from most of our rail stations.


Line2line is a regular bus service linking the Great Northern and Thameslink routes between Hatfield and St Albans City, so you don't need to go into London to travel the six miles between the stations.

Changing onto the bus is easy. One ticket takes you from train to bus and back to train. The buses leave from outside each station and the journey takes just 22 minutes.

Buy a ticket between any Great Northern and Thameslink route stations shown on the map and you can take the bus to travel between St Albans and Hatfield as part of the same ticket. Child, Railcard and GroupSave discounts also apply.

Please note that you can't buy a line2line ticket just between St Albans and Hatfield. Your journey must begin and/or end with a train journey.

Frequent services

There are up to five buses an hour linking the stations in each direction between 7am and 6pm on Mondays to Saturdays, with fewer in the evenings and on Sundays.
