The first ever air-conditioned Tube fleet is now in operation on the Metropolitan, District, Circle, and Hammersmith & City lines, with 192 Tube trains covering 40 per cent of the network.

There are 12 new air-conditioned, high-capacity Class 345 trains have also been introduced on the Liverpool Street to Shenfield and Paddington to Hayes & Harlington routes, which currently operate as TfL Rail. They form part of a 70-strong fleet of trains which will serve the Elizabeth line when it opens.
