Bakerloo line seating replacement - update


As a regular traveller myself, I share the concerns about the appalling state of the upholstery. Here’s the latest update from Tfl:

Dear Karen, 

Thank you for your email on 9 June about the refurbishment of our Bakerloo line trains.

We do have 36 trains on the Bakerloo line, with seats being changed at 3 or 4 carriages at a time (we have the equivalent of 7 trains completed so far). All carriages are to be completed by the end of the year. 

As well as a plan to also improve the ambiance of the carriages over the next few years, by 2020 we will have installed wheelchair bays in selected carriages and destination displays for our customers.

At the end of this month Mark Wild takes over as Managing Director and I know he is very keen to see an end to the old seating on the Bakerloo line. 

Yours sincerely,

Managing Director
