Design for the "New Tube for London" revealed

09.10.2014 | |

Transport for London and design studio PriestmanGoode, we now can, after they unveiled designs for a new fleet of driverless Tube trains due to be rolled out in 2022. The "New Tube for London" features a futuristic design that abandons the traditional multi-carriage layout for a walk-through car, which will provide passengers with air-cooling and onboard WiFi for the first time.

TfL plans to deploy 250 of these next-generation Tube trains on the Piccadilly, Bakerloo, Central and Waterloo & City Lines over the next decade, increasing the capacity on all four lines by a minimum of 25 percent (or 12,000 travellers an hour).They are intended to last for 30 years and run 24 hours a day, perfect for when Transport for London decides to allow all Tube trains to run around the clock without a driver. It expects the first PriestmanGoode-designed carriages to go into service on the Piccadilly line in 2022, completing its full rollout by the mid-2020s.
