    How do you pay for the tube?

    You can pay as you go using contactless (card or device), an Oyster card or a Visitor Oyster card. It also offers great value as pay as you go is cheaper than buying single tickets and you get daily capping.

    Why is the tube so expensive?

    ‘In London, the operating cost of London Underground is completely covered by fare and other commercial revenue. In other countries, however, the cost is covered by a combination of fares, commercial revenue and government subsidy raised through taxation.

    Is it cheaper to use contactless card or Oyster?

    It’s publicised that if you use contactless to pay for travel in London, it’s the same price as using an Oyster card. Of course, if you have a railcard discount (or similar) applied to your Oyster, that will always be cheaper than contactless. Discounts cannot be applied to contactless payment cards.

    Is there a map of all the tube lines?

    This totally solves that problem. The map shows tube lines, overground lines, mainline rail lines, as well as roads, neighbourhoods, parks and rivers. It’s from 2014 so it’s slightly out of date but it also maps out some future lines, including new Overground branches and Crossrail.
