New Tube Map Omits Fare Zones and the Thames

Uh-oh. The latest version of the Tube map omits fare zones and the Thames. That controversy has ensued should come as no surprise to anyone who follows the mapping of the London Underground. (I expect that a parody based on a scene from Der Untergang will be along shortly.) With more changes to the network forthcoming, this map will only have a shelf life of a few months; it’ll be interesting to see if Transport for London keeps these changes or reverts to an older design. People can get very, very touchy about their subway/metro/underground maps. Via All Points Blog and Ed Parsons.
