Jubilee Joy

Once trailing in popularity, London Underground’s Jubilee line now tops the polls and has become London’s favourite tube service.

One in four of those polled named it as their favourite line just ahead of the Victoria line at 19 per cent. The Jubil-ation result comes after years of being synonymous with closures, engineering works and rail replacement services.

The Central and Piccadilly lines were tied, with 12 per cent naming them as their favourite line. The dubious distinction of the Tube’s least favourite line went to the Northern line, with 34 per cent singling it out. The poll comes after Transport for London launched an Olympic-style campaign to manage demand on the network’s busiest line. While the modernisation of the line continues, TfL is urging commuters to consider travelling outside the busiest periods or taking alternative routes and modes of transport.
