Is there a public shapefile containing the stations and lines of the London Underground? I've been doing some intensive searching but I can only find the coordinates of the stations, or the lines in way too much detail on OpenSteeetMap.

Ideally, I want each line to have a single track, not multiple like with OSM.

Ordnance Survey's VectorMap District has a shapefile that contains Underground stations - it's within the "RailwayStation" file but you can filter on the "CLASSIFICA" field. The website is http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/products/os-vectormap-district/index.html and the licence is based on the Open Government Licence http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/opendata/licensing.html. The data is from March 2011 though so could be out of date! Unfortunately I can't see any line information in the OS open products.


TFL (Transport for London) do have a lot of data that is available for Developers, one of the datasets is Stattions Locations.

The website is here


I would read the T&Cs and check to find out if the data you need can be used for your application

There is also a github project with stats and data layers in geoJSON format

Github: Mapped-based data visualisations

Specifically the files here

  • Could you please add more details to your answer, such as explaining what this project precisely does?

  • @ArMoraer the project is irrelevant. The OP wanted a shapefile of London Underground station etc and this project has geoJSON that is IMO better than a shapefile. I've edited the answer to be more precise Apr 22, 2016 at 14:13
