What we're doing

Plan overview

Rebuilding work is happening right across the network.

In addition to improvements already delivered, there are far more underway and planned:

  • A fleet of new air-conditioned walk-through trains have been introduced on the Circle and Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines and are now being introduced on the District line.
  • Major projects to rebuild Tottenham Court Road, Victoria and Bond Street stations will increase capacity, add step-free access and make your journeys faster
  • Further projects to modernise our busiest stations are planned for Bank, Holborn and Camden Town which will be completed in the early and mid 2020s
  • We'll increase the number of trains on the Jubilee and Victoria lines up to 36 trains per hour (a train every 100 seconds) in the peak hours over the next six years
  • Boarding ramps and platform humps will be introduced at more stations to increase accessibility
  • Night Tube services are now running on the Central, Victoria and Jubilee lines. The Northern line (Charing Cross branch) follows on 18 November, with the Piccadilly line coming later this year. The Night Tube offers a 24-hour service on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • We're planning new trains and signalling for the Bakerloo, Central, Piccadilly and Waterloo & City lines. The Piccadilly line will lead the way, with work on signalling beginning as early as 2019 and the first new trains in service from the early 2020s

Our commitments to Londoners 

  • Introduce a new 24-hour Tube service at weekends
  • Further improve the reliability and capacity of our service
  • All Tube stations are controlled and staffed while services operating
  • Make journeys easier for our customers - supported by technology
  • Deliver improvements with the best possible value for money

The future of the Tube

London's population is set to grow from 8.4m today to around 10m by 2030 - that's an extra Tube train full of people every three days. Discover our vision and how we plan to make the Tube fit for the future.

This is our plan to help meet the extra demand and transform the service we offer you when travelling in London. We will provide staff with the right tools, increase the number of ticket machines and update their current software, making them more helpful and easier to use.

Our plans build on our learnings from the London 2012 Olympic Games, when more people used the Tube than ever before. Staff will be more visible and available to make your journey even easier.

Continuous improvements are being made on the network to enhance accessibility, reliability and service frequency, along with improvements, such as air-conditioned trains and WiFi at every station.
