If you've felt like the tube has been particularly crowded lately, then you're not imagining things. TfL has announced that the tube is the busiest it's ever been, with a record 28.614 million journeys taken in the last week of October. And in other record-breaking news, October 9 was the busiest day ever on the tube, with a whopping 4.753 million journeys. No wonder you keep finding yourself being squashed uncomfortably against the door and crouched under someone's dubious-smelling armpit. And it's only going to get busier as TfL expects both the daily and weekly records to be broken again before the end of 2015. Good luck getting a seat out there!
And if it all gets too much, ditch the tube and use TfL's walking tube map instead.
