London Underground will next week start a public consultation on potential changes to the Amersham and Chesham services on the Metropolitan line which could see through trains running from Chesham to central London throughout the day.
LU say the changes would see two trains per hour running direct between Chesham and central London meaning passengers would no longer need to change at Chalfont & Latimer.
The changes would also mean the current four Metropolitan line trains per hour between Amersham and central London would be cut to two. The two trains per hour service provided by Chiltern Trains (one train per hour on Sundays) would be unaffected, so the total number of trains from Amersham to central London would fall from six to four per hour (and from five trains to three per hour on Sundays).
Richard Parry, Director of Strategy and Service Development, said the proposed changes “could be of benefit to many Tube users” and urged all interested passengers “to let us know what they think about the proposed changes by either picking up a leaflet at Amersham or Chesham stations or emailing us at email@example.com.”
Responses need to be received by Friday 18 July
