Metropolitan Line timetable changes from Sun 08 Dec 2013

We've been given a little detail of the upcoming new Metropolitan Line timetable that starts on Sunday 8th December. We wrote previously that we were expecting some additional fast services either side of both the morning and evening peak periods to alleviate the loss of fast trains during off-peak times.

Morning Peak.
From Chorleywood, the first fast service in to central London will be at 06.08 (current first fast service is at 06.42), with the last ‘fast’ service departing at 09.22 (the current departs at 09.06). 

Evening Peak.
Returning from central London in the evening peak, the first ‘fast’ train from Baker Street to Chorleywood will depart at 16.11 (compared to 17.11 at present). The last ‘fast’ service will depart Baker Street at 20.09 (currently it is at 20.05). However the new later ‘semi-fast’ departure at 20.14 from Baker Street referred to above completes the journey to Chorleywood in 40 minutes – which is only two minutes longer than the current last ‘fast’ departure from Baker Street at 20.05.

The view of the Residents Association is that whilst these specific improvements are welcome, they do not go far enough, and we will continue to press for the reintroduction of more fast services in off-peak periods.

We would encourage all residents to register a complaint with TfL and subsequently London Travel Watch regarding the loss of the fast peak services.
And contact David Gauke our MP as well as Chris Hayward our County Councillor
