Bakerloo line changes benefit over 7,000 passengers
The timetable changes, which came into effect on Sunday 18 May, mean that all trains that used to terminate at Willesden Junction now continue onto Stonebridge Park.
In addition, the first train on weekdays, which used to start at Queen's Park station, now begins at Stonebridge Park, thereby serving an additional four stations.
Bakerloo line manager Lance Ramsay said: 'We estimate that this is helping over 7,000 customers every weekday.
'Not only those customers who previously had to get off the train at Willesden Junction because it terminated there.
'They can now travel on to Harlesden or Stonebridge Park stations without breaking their journeys.
'But also those passengers from Stonebridge Park, Harlesden, Willesden Junction and Kensal Green stations who have been able to get on an earlier first train in the morning.'
Last year eleven Silverlink stations transferred to London Underground (LU) including Stonebridge Park station which enabled LU to construct additional staff accommodation at that station.
