Leyton Midland Road station is served by the Gospel Oak to Barking Line (GOBLIN) which runs approximately every half hour. The station is on the High Road about a 20 minute walk from the underground station. There is a long flight of stairs to each platform, and the station is entirely outdoors.
Timetables for GOBLIN can be found on Silverlink's website.
The council has been keen to provision cyclepaths and as there are also many quieter residential roads parallel to the main roads, cycling should be a good alternative form of transport. There are signposts along designated routes. More information is available from Waltham Forest's site, as well as Waltham Forest Cycling Campaign.
Unfortunately there is no cycle rack at Leyton station, although there is a secure rack at Leytonstone, only a few minutes away by bike.
It is worth noting that the council also has a "Pavements are for People" campaign, advertising the possible fines, so please stick to cyclepaths and roads!
Minicabs provide a relatively cheap method of transport and have the benefit of carrying all your shopping! They can be very busy however with waits of 30 minutes at peak times, so plan ahead.
Firms available include Orient Cars (020 8556 1010), with their office on the High Road near the Orient FC, Eagle Cars (020 8558 1164) operating from a yellow portacabin next to the tube station and Bailey Gardiner (020 8520 1000) based in the Bakers Arms.
Leyton is easily accessible by road, although the traffic and limited parking will probably encourage you to use public transport where possible. There is only one carpark near the station, with 14 spaces. Although side roads are not covered by any kind of permit scheme, residents park on the road and so you are unlikely to find a space where you need it unless you drive to a supermarket and use their carpark.
Details of forthcoming roadworks are available on the Waltham Forest website, although this covers the whole borough. Roadworks in Leyton will also be reported in the news section of this site.
