056/2011 transport

056/2011 transport, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Every 15 minutes, clean, non-stop, efficient trains carry passengers between central London and Gatwick airport. Not having a car when travelling forces one to think about the different options of transport. I was pleased to see the many greener alternatives available in London, in fact many more than in my home town.

First of all, there is the congestion charge – effective since 2003 – which stops many motorists driving into central London, and has really made a difference in the horrendous traffic. This time round, I noticed these new electric hybrid double-deckers, which must be more environmentally-friendly, judging by the text on the side.

Another new initiave were these Barclay’s bikes that you could hire in many places in the centre.

We did most of our exploring on foot, but now it’s time to say good-bye to London once again – till we next meet again.
