    London Underground Facts:
    The London Underground is the World's biggest and oldest subway system.

    500 trains operate daily.

    2 million people travel on the system each day.

    Oxford Circus is the busiest station on the system with 22,500 people per hour using it during peak periods.

    At peak periods the tube uses an incredible 2% of the country's total electricity capacity.

    780 million passenger journeys are made annually.

    There are 270 stations on the system.

    During peak periods trains run at 90 second intervals.

    The total track length is 392 kilometres or 240 miles, of which 105 miles are underground (20 miles in "cut & cover" tunnels, 85 miles in "tube tunnels".

    The world famous UNDERGROUND logo was agreed by the London Passenger Traffic Conference in 1907.

    When the Central Line, then called the Central Railway, opened on 27 June 1900 there was an immediate and noticeable decline in the sales of umbrellas. The reason attributed to this was that gentlemen did not need to protect their silk top hats as they had when sitting on open-top omnibuses.
