London’s New Tube Map For Walking Between Stations

This map from Transport for London may seem a bit unusual, but the aim behind it is probably sound.

This page on the TfL web site, entitled New Tube map launched to help get Londoners walking. This is said.

The new map is the first official version in the world to show the number of steps between stations. It follows TfL’s very popular Walking Tube map, which launched last year and shows the walking times between stations. The new steps Tube map shows how to save time on everyday journeys. It will also help the increasing number of Londoners who set themselves a daily target of steps to take as part of daily exercise and getting fit.

I have always felt that what is needed as well, is more information on the walking short-cuts on the tube. A good place to start is at the list of Out Of Station Interchanges, which are generally a short walk.

  1. Thank you so much for directing my attention to the new walking times maps.

    I am a bit restricted at times in my ability to walk long distances and these may very well encourage me to experiment more and become more adventurous in my outings. I may even try to use them to try to get a bit more exercise as i am always being gently persuaded to do by the medics.

    • I have a feeling that walk say for fifteen minutes a day in the sun, is a good way to get the vitamin D wse need. One of my friends, who is a top cardiologist says that lack of vitamn D causes lots of problems.

      I was low and have improved since getting more sun. My wakking is better.
