Gatwick Express is the name of a high-frequency passenger service between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport in South East England, operated by Southern.
The Gatwick Express service commenced in May 1984 with air-conditioned InterCity stock. It was privatised in April 1996 with National Express operating the franchise. In June 2008 Gatwick Express ceased to exist as a separate franchise, being merged into the Southern franchise, although continuing to maintain its own identity. Some peak-hour Gatwick Express services now continue beyond Gatwick Airport to Brighton.

“To live life well is to express life poorly; if one expresses life too well, one is living it no longer.”
