Vauxhall station is a National Rail, London Underground and London Buses interchange station. It is located at the Vauxhall Cross road junction opposite the southern approach to Vauxhall Bridge over the River Thames in the London district of Vauxhall. The station is on the boundary of zones 1 and 2 of the London Travelcard area.
The National Rail station is located on a viaduct and has eight platforms. Generally, the inner platforms see little use since outer suburban and longer distance trains to and from Waterloo pass through without stopping. There is a frequent service of trains to London Waterloo and to the suburbs of south-west London.
The bus station - which is spread out above ground across the road from the rail terminal - has a photovoltaic roof to generate electricity to meet its own energy needs. It is the busiest bus station in the city after that at London Victoria. The London Underground station is in deep tube below the National Rail station and opened on 23 July 1971.
London Buses routes 2, 36 (24 hour service), 77, 87, 88 (24 hour service), 156, 185, 196, 344 (24 hour service), 360, 436 and Night Bus routes N2, N87, N136 serve the station.
