Our Ref:         FOI-1006-1718

Thank you for your request received on 28 July 2017 asking for information about step-free access on the London Underground.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

Making the Underground more accessible for our customers is one of our top priorities. We have made good progress but we’re determined to do even more even quicker. In December 2016, the Mayor of London announced that he will instigate the biggest boost to step-free access on the Underground in the network's 153 year history, by investing an additional £200m over the next five years. As part of our Business Plan, we have committed to making more than 30 additional Underground stations step-free by 2021/22. The move will bring the total number of stations with step-free access to all platforms to more than 100, representing more than 40 per cent of the Underground network and significantly increasing the proportion from the current level of 26 per cent.

The information you asked for is available on our website using the following link:

In accordance with section 21 of the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply you with a copy of the requested information as it is already accessible to you elsewhere.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
