TUBE users in Hillingdon can now access toilets and platforms more easily after two new maps were published.
To make life easier for pregnant, elderly, or disabled passengers the Mayor and London Underground are launching the Tube Toilet map alongside the Step-free Tube Guide.
The Tube Toilet map shows which stations have male, female and accessible toilets for wheelchair users, whether they are inside or outside the ticket gates, and whether they have baby changing facilities.
The Step-free Tube Guide gives information about the step and gap between the train and platform at step-free stations and gives information about the stations where you can change between lines without encountering steps or escalators.
There are nine stations with public toilets in Hillingdon: Heathrow Terminal 1,2 and 3, Hillingdon, West Ruislip, Ickenham, Ruislip, Ruislip Manor, Eastcote, Ruislip Gardens and South Ruislip.
Heathrow 1,2 and 3, Hillingdon and Ruislip also have step-free access in addition to Uxbridge station.
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "These new maps are designed to make life easier for a wide range of Londoners and visitors and will bring real benefits to those for whom stairs are an obstacle, and those who value knowing where they can access toilet facilities.
"This new level of detail will be particularly useful for many disabled Londoners, who will now be able to gauge whether they will be able to access trains independently or whether they may need some assistance.
"This will improve confidence in our system and mean that more people can use the transport network that so many of us take for granted."
Under the old system wheelchair symbols denoted step-free access stations, but now the new guide has a number of features to help passengers.
¥ Green, amber or red symbols on step free access stations showing the height of the step between the platform and the train, coupled with a coloured ruler on the side of the map so that people can visualise how high the step is.
¥ Information about the width of the gap between platform and train and there are also different symbols to show stations which are step-free when changing between lines, but where it is not possible to get in or out of the station without using stairs or an escalator.
Wayne Trevor, London UndergroundÕs Accessibility & Inclusion Manager said: "This information is vital for many mobility impaired people, including wheelchair users, so they can decide the best route to take.
"It will also be useful for many older people, people with temporary injuries, and those travelling with buggies or lots of luggage. We worked with disabled people on developing the Step-free Tube Guide, to make sure that it would meet their needs."
