It's a very interesting concept, but it still needs a few improvements (reliability, speed) to make it a really feasible way of paying for your journeys.

- you would be very surprised actually, i know quite a few people who use them it obviously depends where you office and home is - if your lucky enough to have both fairly close to the water then its a far less stressful journey then by train...

I wasn't aware anywhere else of significance accepted contactless cards? I know in Seoul the transport smart card has evolved to be more like a debit card and can be used in many stores. But could I just used my Santader credit card to pay by touching readers in Seoul? Or would I need a local credit card designed for use with the readers?

Korean bank card. Most Korean banks require non-Koreans to get a Korean to co-sign a credit card but KB aren't as strict and will treat foreigners as human beings.. 위국인이면 대구은행 진짜 나빠(rant). Works on any subway / bus system in the country. A bit different from paying by contactless or T-money as it adds up transport fares separately and deducts once a month (or if you hit a pre-set maximum). Instead of showing remaining balance when you get onto a bus / subway it shows current spending balance.

Maybe I'm nitpicking but where/how did the person who made that work out the line depths? At a glance it is obvious that lines that share tracks are shown as different..

It is irrelevant but nice. Can't they stick the station names for better understanding?

It would become even more clustered with info. I don't think it would be beautiful.

NFC is just the interface - the software on the device, the secure element in the hardware, and the back-end systems is what enables Apple Pay to work with any contactless terminal.

No Android solution in the past was complete enough to tick all four boxes.

Finally I added fare zones into my Tube map.
Keep in mind that the state of this map is temporary and
eventually I will hide the zonal system from the base map unless you click the "show fare zones" button
because I agree with Max Roberts that the fare zones boundaries are an information pollution to the already crowded map.
As you may have noticed I also added the locations where pink reader is available.
Something (if i remember correctly) has never been in the official map.
There is also quite some English description either shown directly or hidden in the mouse-hover tooltip.
If you spot any strange grammar or spelling please point them out for me.

Thank you

Edit 0820: Someone in Reddit informed me the future acquisition of the Greenford Branch Line by TfL in 2017 so another update.
Looks like something similar to Romford to Upminster Line which is another unwanted bonus for improving Crossrail operation.

Edit 0826: + step-free accessibility. Again this information is hidden by default due to its high pollution.

London Underground postpones introduction of 24-hour trains
Thursday, August 27, 2015



FOLLOWING a series of strikes London Underground has decided to postpone the introduction of 24-hour services for the first time at weekends on five lines to allow negotiations with trade unions to continue

The Night Tube round-the-clock services were due to start on September 12 on Fridays and Saturdays on the Jubliee and Victoria lines, and key sections of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines. However, train drivers have been concerned at having to work unsocial hours

Was it just a bluff? They're not going to do that?

It wasn't a bluff, but they aren't going to do it (for now). There was real intent to do it, but trade unions didn't accept the terms offered for the workers who were going to work those shifts.
