Extra train carriages have been added to the daily journeys between Windsor and Waterloo railway stations.
South West Trains started running the first ever 10-car regular passenger trains between the two stations on Monday.
They will be used to operate 14 different train services every weekday, offering an extra 28 carriages per day on the Windsor-Waterloo route.
Over the next year, a further 98 carriages will be rolled out to provide extra space for passengers travelling during peak times and on a number of mainline and suburban services.
Rail Minister Stephen Hammond said: "We are investing record amounts into transforming our railways and it is great to see this investment delivering real benefits to passengers, local businesses and the economy.
"These much-needed carriages will provide a welcome boost to commuters through additional trains and services, allowing more people to travel on these vital commuter routes."
