TRANSPORT IN LONDON
London is one of the biggest cities in the world with a population of over 8 million.
200 years ago London was a compact city where most people got around on foot.
In 1900 almost every vehicle on the streets of London was horse-drawn.
15 years later everything changed. Horse buses and horse trams disappeared in
London, and motor taxis outnumbered horse-drawn cabs.
In the 1920s buses overtook trams in popularity. Buses and the red double deck bus
are iconic symbols of London.
The London Underground carries more than three million passengers a day.
Lately the London transport system has considerably improved its service.
