TfL Remove Zones And Thames From New-Look Tube Map

An updated, less cluttered version of the London Underground map has been released. And, for the first time in nearly 70 years, it lacks a river. Perhaps even more surprising is that zone boundaries are no longer shown. If this map becomes the standard visualisation across all stations, how will people using zoned travel cards know whether they are legally ticketed for their destination? Can they really be expected to pay fines for crossing non-advertised zone boundaries? We predict a few legal challenges from disgruntled passengers unless some alternative signage is planned. We've asked TfL to clarify this aspect, and will let you know the response. The map also includes many other changes, as chronicled in detail by Diamond Geezer. His indefatigable crusade against over-cluttering seems to have been heeded, although he carefully remains neutral on most of the present alterations. Image by Richard Parmiter.
