Interesting that when they travel to Wembley and Wimbledon they'll be going by coach - What's wrong with the District Line????? And the wonderful Metropolitan Line? Or perhaps these will just add to their original views that our transport system was "often obsolete". Anyway, if we do get the bid we've been promised all sorts of wonders to the transport system so athletes can spend time "competing not commuting". Lord Coe is slightly deranged if he thinks athletes would rely on any form of public transport to get to an event - unless they gave themselves at least an hour longer than need be.
Some of the promised transport improvements include:
�1billion spent on the East London Line Longer Jubilee Line Trains Northern Line upgrades Tubes running until 2.30am every day of the Olympics Connecting services allowing visitors to reach the Olympic Park (in Stratford) from 309 stations
