  7. 7. The Tube The London Underground (also colloquially called the Tube) is a rapid transit system that serves a large part of Greater London and some parts of Buckinghamshi- re, Hertfordshire and Essex. It incorporates the oldest section of underground railway in the world, which opened in 1863 and now forms part of the Circle,Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines; and the first line to operate electric trains, in 1890, now part of the Northern line. The Underground serves 270 stations and has 402 kilometres of track, 45 per cent of which is underground. It is the second largest metro system in the world in terms of route miles, after the Shanghai Metro. In 2007, more than one billion passenger journeys were recorded, making it the third busiest metro system in Europe, after Moscow and Paris. The tube is an international icon for London, with the tube map, considered a design clas- sic, having influenced many other transport maps worldwide. How to get the right tube. The names of the ending stations are very useful to understand in which direction you have to go. For instance, if you are in the Central Line (the red one), at Liverpool Street Station and you would like to go: to Notthing Hill Gate, you have to take the tube that goes direction West Ruislip or Ealing Brodway to Stratford, you have to take the tube that goes direction Woodford or Epping At Liverpool Street station you can change to the The Circle line. yellow, pink or purple line Very useful, in London is the Circle line, coloured yellow on the tube map. It has a circular route around the centre of London on the north side of the River Tha- mes linking the main line railway terminii.Pagina 7 A TRIP TO LONDON
  8. 8. LEZIONE 1 Pagina 8 The fare systemThe Underground uses a zonal fare system: London is divided into 6 zones; Zone 1 is the most central, with a boun-dary just beyond the Circle line, and Zone 6 is the outermost and includes London Heathrow Airport.Some ticket machines accept coins, notes and credit cards, some accept coins only, and some accept cards only.Since 2003 you can use the Oyster card, a smartcard with a contactless chip, which you can charge up with creditand use to pay for travel.
