London Underground beats busiest day record

London Underground has beaten its busiest day record, with 4.821 million passengers travelling on the Tube on December 4.

The week ending December 4 was also the busiest week in Tube history, with 28.76 million passengers carried. That beat the previous record of 28.69 million, set in the week ending October 31.

Additionally, 18 of the top 20 busiest days ever have been in 2015. And Transport for London expects the records to be beaten again before the end of the year.

“The Tube continues to break records for the number of customers we’re carrying as London’s economy and population keeps on growing,” said LU Managing Director Nick Brown.

“The vast majority of the busiest days in the Tube’s 152-year history have been recorded this year.”
