Why not give it a try?
London Tube Traveller is not in any way affiliated with Transport For London (TFL). It works on Android 2.1 and upwards, supports "move to SD" and the screens are optimised for both phones and tablet devices.
The first BART cars were ordered from the California based Rohr Industries, with later series being delivered by Soferval (Alsthom) and Morrison-Knudsen. BART is totally grade-separated (no level crossings) and runs in ATO mode without any wayside signalling.
The first stretch opened for public service on 11 September 1972 between Oakland and Fremont. In 2008, the entire network has a total length of 159 km long, with 44 stations serving some 3 million people in the area:
- 26.5 km runs in subways through urban areas (8.9 km in San Francisco; 8.6 km in South San Francisco/San Bruno; 4 km in Oakland; 5 km in Berkeley);
- 5.8 km (7.4 km with approach tunnels) underneath the San Francisco Bay at a maximum depth of 41 m below sea level;
- 5.5 km is the Berkeley Hills tunnel between Rockridge and Orinda;
- 14 stations lie on the San Francisco peninsula, and 29 on the East Bay side;
- 16 stations are underground, 14 elevated and 14 at grade (all fully accessible to the disabled).
The BART system is operated with three all-day lines:
Blue Line: Dublin/Pleasanton - San Francisco - Daly City (extended to Millbrae in the evenings and weekends)
Yellow Line: Pittsburg/Bay Point - San Francisco - San Francisco International Airport
Orange Line: Richmond - Fremont
During daytime service (Mon-Sat, until approx. 19:00) two additional lines are operated:
Red Line: Richmond - San Francisco - Millbrae (Richmond - Daly City on Saturdays during daytime service)
Green Line: Fremont - San Francisco - Daly City
WHAT IS A TUBEWALK?
A tubewalk is simply a walk between two Tube stations. Tubewalking is a great way to explore London: every tubewalk starts and ends on public transport, and you can string them together to create walks that last as long as you want, from minutes to days.
The tubewalks in this application are all self-guided walking tours that try to visit as many interesting places as possible. This means they meander around quite a bit, so they're entertaining rather than efficient.
WHAT DOES TUBEWALKER DO?
Tubewalker contains detailed maps and descriptions for 316 tubewalks, which together cover the entire London Underground network - if there's a line between two Tube stations, then there's a tubewalk for it.
Zone 1 is included for free, while zones 2 to 9 are available in the full version of the app. Note that the DLR and London Overground aren't part of London Underground, so they're not covered.
You can choose tubewalks in five ways:
• By Tube line
• By station name
• By current location
• By picking a recommended tubewalk
• By searching for places of interest
and each tubewalk comes with the following:
• A description of the walk
• A zoomable route map with places of interest and your current location
• Detailed descriptions of all places of interest
• Photographs from the walk
This free version of Tubewalker contains details of 88 tubewalks between 64 stations, covering 71 miles of walking with over 450 points of interest and 2150 photographs - that's everything you need to get tubewalking in Zone 1. Have fun!
(For comparison, the full version of Tubewalker contains details of 316 tubewalks between 276 stations, covering 440 miles of walking with over 1300 points of interest and 9750 photographs.)
The London Underground (often shortened to the Underground) is a rapid transit system in the United Kingdom, serving a large part of Greater London and some parts of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. It incorporates the oldest section of underground railway in the world, which opened in 1863 and now forms part of the Circle, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines; and the first line to operate electric trains, in 1890, now part of the Northern line.
The Underground system is also colloquially called the Tube. As commonly used today both by Londoners and in most official publicity, this term embraces the entire system.
It originally applied only to the deep-level lines with trains of a smaller and more circular cross-section, and served to distinguish them from the sub-surface "cut-and-cover" lines that were built first and originally used steam locomotives.
