Transport for London has confirmed that Thameslink services will be added to the Tube map temporarily.
Dr Alison Moore AM, Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee, said:
“The Thameslink line is an essential addition to the Tube map so Londoners who have to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic have more options to do so, not least during this difficult festive period. It is vital people can be as safe as possible when they travel and bigger trains will help maintain important social distancing.
“The Transport Committee recommended that Thameslink be added to the Tube map to help Londoners with disabilities because these trains are designed for accessibility first and foremost. It is time for TfL to keep Thameslink on the map permanently for better accessibility across the city.”
