    Ticket machines

    Gatwick Express

    Hi, Would I be able to travel on the Gatwick Express with a London-West Worthing season ticket? I was under the impression I could, as there are no restrictions on my season ticket and as London-Gatwick is part of the permitted route then I should be okay? Thanks in advance for your help!
