Please see the table below for the information requested for the District, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Victoria and Northern lines.

Transport for London (TfL) is introducing new trains on the Piccadilly line from 2024, which will have CCTV. CCTV is also being delivered as part of the Central Line Improvement Programme, to be completed in 2023, with the first new trains going into service this year. Transport for London plans to replace the Bakerloo line trains, to include CCTV, once the required funding is secured.

Providing a safe environment for customers and staff remains TfL’s top priority. There are more than 77,000 CCTV cameras across London’s transport network, including 12,000 cameras across the Tube network. There is already CCTV on all platforms. TfL has a system in place to monitor, maintain and assure cameras, to ensure the integrity of the systems and safety and security of customers and staff.
