Redesigned London Tube Map Aims To Get People Walking
The updated display illustrates approximately how many steps it takes to walk between stations for a healthier commute
Walking can be a best ways to get around during the busiest times of the workday in any city, and the Transport for London has launched a new version of the Tube map to show commuters how many steps it takes to walk between stations. This initiative has been launched as a part of a commitment by the Mayor of London and TfL to make London one of the most walkable cities in the world.
The map should be helpful for the increasing number of Londoners who set themselves a daily target of steps as a part of their daily exercise routine, allowing them to see how easy it is to walk between popular or central stations. For instance, walking from Leicester Square to Covent Garden takes just 400 steps, while Kings Cross to Euston takes 1,200 steps. The coordinates are based on a walking speed of 100 steps per minute.
