London—public transport that works

Elizabeth Farrelly writes about public transport that works. The London Underground carried more than a billion people in 2006-2007, a record.

If you can live with expressions like 'peristaltic brio', it's a good article.

The Los Angeles metro is quite busy it has 300,000 passengers daily. Not bad for a 'system' which is a little longer then just the two lines from Sydney to Campbelltown ( East Hills and the 'old southern line' via Granville)
And its clean, fast and ontime
