    This paper presents a study on employment accessibility in London with the future addition of Crossrail I and II to the public transport network and its impact towards equity. Two different accessibility measures have been used to calculate access to all jobs and to low-income jobs. Travel times and monetary costs have been estimated using OpenTripPlanner and public transport schedules acquired in the GTFS format. The results have shown that outer boroughs will see a larger increase in accessibility levels due to the implementation of Crossrail services. The contribution towards equity in transport, however, would be minor.
