Subway Maps by Scale

How the London Underground compares in size with other subways

Prompted by the ridiculous price comparisons in
yesterday's post where London Underground claimed that the Tube had one of the cheapest fares in the world. It did this by looking at the amount of stations you could travel in on an single Oyster card prepay fare £3.50 - this was quite a lot, and using their logic the tube looked cheap.

I said that's because in the zone one central area we have lots and lots of London Underground stations packed into a comparatively small geographical area. See just four systems by scale below:
