Crossrail, together with Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL), are working on Heathrow Airport to prepare for the start of the Elizabeth line services.
The new Elizabeth line services will significantly improve links between Heathrow and a number of central London destinations, including the West End, the City and Canary Wharf.

ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM HEATHROW AIRPORT
TfL Rail provides stopping services from Paddington to Heathrow Airport (Terminals 2&3 and Terminal 4 stations) via Hayes & Harlington. The Heathrow Express will continue to provide a non-stop service between Heathrow and Paddington.
Services from Paddington to Heathrow run every 30 minutes, with a journey time of about 35 minutes. Free shuttle services run from Terminals 2&3 to Terminal 5 with a journey time of 6 minutes.
When the full route opens, the Elizabeth line will provide a direct link between the airport and central London destinations including Bond Street, Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf.
A total of six Elizabeth line trains per hour will serve Heathrow Terminals. Four will go to Terminals 2, 3 and 4 and two will go to Terminals 2, 3 and 5. This will also increase services to Ealing Broadway, Southall and Hayes & Harlington.
You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services. To find out which these are, see TfL's user guide or use the advanced options in Cycle Journey Planner.
