General description : Ramps have been installed at this station to allow entrance / exit to trains on the Piccadilly line.

This station serves Earls Court and is an interchange between the Piccadilly and District lines. The introduction of ramped access to the ticket hall from Earls Court Road and the installation of lifts mean all the platforms are step-free from the street.
Recently platform humps have been installed on the Piccadilly line platforms, but to date the publicly available maps do not reflect this with the blue wheelchair logo.
Outside the station there was a good standard of level and continuous pavement. Tactile paving had been introduced at the pedestrian crossing of Warwick Road.

(Piccadilly line only) - There is lift access between street and platform to the Piccadilly line, and to the District line.
