The No-Zone Layer

new tube mapThis is Transport for London’s new, updated Tube map.

Notice anything missing?

Boris did, on his return from New York and, according to a City Hall source, “hit the roof.” Yes, they’ve decided to not only take away the zonal bands, but also, rather oddly, the River Thames.

A spokesman for Mr Johnson said: “The Mayor has ordered that the river be reinstated at the earliest opportunity without incurring any further cost.” Bozza’s Twitter page said, “Can’t believe that the Thames disappeared off the tube map whilst I was out the country! It will be reinstated….”

Transport for London didn’t bank on the public outcry, and so the Thames will be back when the map is updated again in December.  They are also considering reintroducing the zones (which would be useful for most people, I guess, who need to know, like, how much to pay for their ticket).

Honestly.  Who approves these ludicrous “change for change’s sake” decisions?
