Thameslink should be on the tube map!

Caroline Pidgeon welcomed the prospect of the Thameslink route appearing on the tube map, to remind central London travellers that it's a convenient and less crowded option.

Caroline told the London SE1 website:

"I very much welcome what looks like the Mayor and TfL backing down on this issue.

"There are short and long term arguments for putting Thameslink back on the tube map.

"Firstly, at a time when we need to ensure social distancing and offer passengers the widest possible range of transport options it makes absolute sense.

"Secondly, it will also have long term benefits. At peak times Thameslink's frequency is set to reach 24 trains an hour, offering a similar service to most London Underground lines. The stations are also fully accessible for disabled people throughout central London.

"A train line that for all intents and purposes can serve the public with the same service as a tube line deserves to be on the tube map."
