Living in London means you will become au fait with fast-paced public transit. The city is divided into nine transit zones from Zone 1 in the city centre to Zone 9 on the outskirts. In one day, a Londoner may hop on the bus, travel on the Underground, or ride on the DLR to find the fastest route between destinations.
An Oyster electronic smartcard is the easiest and most reliable way to move around the city. Load it with a prepaid travel pass or pay as you go credit to use on the London Underground, Overground, Bus network and overground trains. Don’t forget to tap in and tap out as you get around from place to place. The cost depends on the time of day, and by how many zones you travel through.
The most convenient way to plan a route is by downloading a public transit app like Citymapper. The London Underground is a railway system that has tube stations across Greater London. Generally, lines open around 5 am and run till about 12 am On Fridays and Saturdays, some lines operate on The Night Tube offering a 24-hour Underground service.
London buses run throughout the day and night. Night bus services are a preferred method of travel to get home late at night. The cashless buses that accept Oyster card or contactless bank card payment can, however, be longer to travel on during rush hour traffic in which a tube can offer a quicker journey. If you prefer to travel overground, the DLR railway serves parts of East and South East London, with connecting stops at London Underground stations.
Of course, many locals choose to escape the congestion of public transit and traffic by choosing to travel by bike. London has cycle hire schemes across the city such as Santander Cycles, which has more than 750 docking stations. With the first half-hour free, and only £2 to access a bike for 24 hours, cycling is a more affordable way to zip around town, not to mention a great way of keeping fit in London.
London is full of pet owners, who can be spotted around the city’s off-lead parks, pet-friendly pubs or on the Tube with their dogs.
