More Stations to become Step-Free

We are now aiming for more than half of the stations on our network to be step-free by 2018. Brent Cross Tube Station will be the next station to gain a lift and benefit from our step-free programme. We met the previous target of 45 per cent of our stations being step-free ahead of schedule.
