Answered By: 
The Mayor

The locations on the Transport for London (TfL) network with selective door opening at one or more platforms are:

       Northern line: Camden Town, Charing Cross, Clapham Common, Euston, Hampstead, Moorgate

       Metropolitan line: Barbican, Eastcote, Euston Square, Great Portland Street, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Liverpool Street, Rayners Lane, Northwood

       Circle/District/Hammersmith & City lines: Acton Town, Baker Street, Bayswater, Cannon Street, Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common, Gloucester Road, Goldhawk Road, Gunnersbury, Hammersmith, Monument, Notting Hill Gate, Paddington, Parsons Green, Sloane Square, Temple, Upminster, West Brompton, West Kensington

       DLR: Cutty Sark, Elverson Road, Gallions Reach, Royal Albert

       London Overground: Canada Water, Rotherhithe, Stoke Newington, Wapping

As TfL continues the modernisation of the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, it will be able to remove selective door opening at some platforms on those lines.

There is no selective door opening on Trams, nor on TfL Rail. Once the full length Elizabeth line trains are introduced, there will be selective door opening at ten stations on the outer parts of the line: Burnham, Forest Gate, Hanwell, Iver, Langley, Manor Park, Maryland, Seven Kings, Taplow, Twyford
