FastJP – the fast journey planner for the British rail network

Independent journey planner for the rail network in Great Britain. Uses official timetable data licenced from ATOC/RSP, updated weekly.

Welcome to FastJP! On this site you can use our free journey planner to plan all your journeys on the British rail network. Features include:

  • Fast and flexible; suitable for use on mobile devices as well as desktop PCs; screen view and printable itineraries available
  • Timetable data available 14 weeks in advance and updated weekly
  • Uses official station minimum connection times and non-timetabled links between stations (walking, Underground, bus etc.)
  • Recognises station groups used for fares purposes (e.g. London Terminals), and finds the fastest journeys from/to any station in the group. In addition, up to 5 different origin and/or destination stations may be specified and journeys will be found from/to those which give the fastest journey opportunities
  • Up to 5 different via and/or avoid stations may be specified, for precise route control, and the nature of the call (pass, stop or change at the station) is configurable
  • Stopovers at any via station are configurable: after adding the via, select Must change here and fill in the minimum layover time requred
  • Unofficial connections may be forced by adding a negative layover time at the relevant via/change station
  • Extensive control is available over which train operating companies to use or avoid and which non-rail travel modes may be used

As of 2016, the journey planner is now mature, but it's still a new product so there may be bugs. Comments and feedback in this respect are very welcome; please send to:
