Swapping the tube for commuting by walking and cycling

It's take 2. Colossal bus queues, sky rocketing taxi prices and inner city gridlock doesn’t make for a happy London. At TravelTime we’re refusing to let it get us down. Instead we’re channelling Nancy Sinatra - because these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do.

To help you along we’ve created some specialised maps using software from TravelTime to help you get around today. Commuting by walking and cycling is a possible alternative if you don’t feel like braving the bus. Every map shows where you can be within a 45 minute commute.
