During 2015-2016 I expect nearly 2900 additional seats will be made available on trains from Woking to London Waterloo during peak hours. On top of this figure by the end of 2018 over 4200 additional seats will be provided.

The provision of additional capacity during Off Peak periods is not specifically contracted, however just over 2600 additional seats will be provided during 2015-16. Off-peak services beyond 2017 have not been contracted in detail but there is likely to be an increase during the off peak period as well.
