Local services in North West London
If you happen to have a car then this is one of the few districts in London where car travel is commonplace but, with a population of 1.8 million people and two-thirds of residents commuting to work by car rather than public transport throughout the NW district, don't expect the roads to be congestion-free because they're not. Getting around the area can be slow at times and unfortunately the bus doesn't offer much relief. Car parking is limited to a number of Pay & Display on the roadside and a number of smaller car parks, but these can both be costly. Thankfully, the NW post code area falls outside the Central London Congestion Charging Zone so that will save you some money but, depending on where you need to go, the Underground may be your best bet for commuting to work, with the district served by the Piccadilly, Central, Metropolitan and Bakerloo lines.
