Hundreds of thousands of people use public transportation in London every day. The British were some of the first people to create land-based mass transit systems in the middle of the 19th century. The underground rail system began in 1863. Today, millions of people get around London by tube (London Underground) and by an extensive network of rail system that has several large stations in London.

Several National Rail stations in town are served by the Underground as well. Combine the various train systems with the famous double decker buses, and you have a robust public mass transit system moving millions of people daily.
