Ruislip Residents' Association

London Underground

London Underground serves Ruislip well, with three local lines: the Metropolitan, Piccadilly and Central lines.

There are five local stations: Ruislip and Ruislip Manor stations are on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines. Both stations have large car parks, and Ruislip Station has a bus station attached (serving U1, U10, H13, E7, 331, 114 and 398 bus routes – see London Bus routes serving Ruislip for more details). West Ruislip and South Ruislip are both on the Central line and are also served by some Chiltern Railways services. Ruislip Gardens is on the Central line only.

For interactive route finders, plus timetables, please see the Transport for London website or go directly to the Station page for live arrival times and last departure times while out and about:

Courtesy of Transport for LondonThe current (old, A Stock) Metropolitan line trains have been running for over 40 years and are nearing (or some say have passed) the end of their lives.  As such new Metropolitan line trains (S Stock) are being built by Bombardier, and some have now started to run along the line as far into London as Baker Street.   The current aim is for all the A Stock to have been replaced by S Stock trains by the end of 2012.  However some of the new trains are having teething troubles, e.g. automatic doors not opening, so this deadline could slip.



Courtesy of Transport for LondonAs with other new trains coming into service, the poles/handrails will no longer co-ordinate with the 'colour' of the tube line (i.e. the Metropolitan line used to have magenta poles) – they will now all be yellow, so as to be an easier colour for visually impaired customers to be able to see.

While the quality of some individual services may on occasion fall well short of expectations, we in Ruislip are very fortunate to have four different options for getting around by train. Except in extreme circumstances, there is always an alternative means of getting into town - if either the Metropolitan or Piccadilly, or both, are out of action, then there is the Central Line from West Ruislip.

Another option at West Ruislip is the Chiltern Line - a very comfortable ride to Marylebone in less than 30 minutes. Travelcards can be used on the Chiltern, and there is a Bakerloo Underground service from Marylebone.
