Transport for London

Amersham and Chesham

Chesham station In 2008 London Underground (LU) consulted on proposals to change off-peak Metropolitan line services at Amersham and Chesham.

More than 800 responses were received, with 56 per cent of respondents in favour of the proposals and 28 per cent against.

After careful evaluation of the responses to ensure that all views were considered, we have decided to go ahead with the proposals on the grounds that on balance they will be of benefit to the area.

Changes to services


The shuttle service between Chesham and Chalfont & Latimer stations will be replaced by two direct services per hour to and from central London at all times of the day.


Metropolitan line services to and from Amersham station will be reduced from four per hour to two during off-peak times. This is necessary to allow the Chesham services to run.

Services not affected

The following services will not be affected by the changes:


We expect the changes to be made during 2011, once new trains on the Metropolitan line have been delivered as part of our Tube upgrade plan.


Some of the benefits include:
