London Underground statistics
Learn about the best way to zip around London.
Underground fare prices over time
The income for TfL from the London Underground has risen steadily over the past eight years. It has reached its peak at £2.77 billion this year, up by 5% from the previous year. As well as the ease of payment and fast links, initiatives like fare freezes may have encouraged people to travel more on the London Underground.
The busiest Tube stations
How busy an Underground station is is reported based on the number of passenger entries and exits in a year. With King’s Cross St Pancras linking six Underground lines, it’s no surprise that this station has the most people traveling through it each year, with 97.9 million people. Closely following is Waterloo station, with 91.3 million visitors every year. While these two top stations are likely to have a lot of people travelling via the Tube due to train departures, Oxford Circus at third place serves only three Underground lines.
What annoys Londoners most on the Tube?
People were asked to report how irritating they found each of the things below. A common activity most people found very annoying is having to listen to other people’s music on the Tube. While 6 in 10 (59%) reported to hating hearing other people’s music, only 5% fewer said they were annoyed when people did not give up their seat for pregnant or elderly people.
Crime on the Tube
In the final quarter of 2018/19, there were 14.2 crimes per 1 million passenger journeys. This is equivalent to a crime being committed in every 70,423 journeys. This is up by 16% from the Q3 data and represents the time period with the most crimes since 2015/16. The number of crimes at the Q1 2015/16 time was 6.9, around half (49%) the number of crimes committed now.
Type of crime
The most common crime on the Underground was theft of passenger property, with 3,758 reported cases in 2016/17 and 6,823 in 2018/19. Following this, violence against a person had 3,292 cases in 2018/19, around half the number (48%) of cases compared to the most common crime. With over a thousand cases each for the year, serious public order offences and sexual offences were also common crimes.
