This morning I journeyed on the London Underground to visit a client site construction project.. but unusually for me this was done at peak commuter time as the meeting was for a 9am start.
Whilst not unaccustomed to taking the tube, which is a quick and efficient way of getting in and out of town, I’m not often taking the train at peak times.
Space taken up by seating vs standing – 1:3
Foot steps – space in the middle of a train.
Dynamic Seating based on time of day
The bashful british way and social norms & love of queues.
So – could this work? Could we try it? What is the ROI / Economic impact of improved capacity & throughput on the tube?
