A twitter survey of rush-hour passengers on one of London Underground's busiest lines has revealed overwhelming support for Transport for London's new campaign to encourage other users to walk or cycle to work in order to reduce overcrowding during peak periods.
'Even if only 20% of the other people on my train walked or cycled, it would make my journey to work a lot more bearable,' responded one Northern Line commuter, while another even held out hope for a seat if enough of her fellow travellers saw sense and followed TfL's advice to use some means other than her train to get to work.
Other long-suffering tube users were less optimistic, though, with many echoing the thoughts of City worker @Richard_Renfrew, who tweeted, 'this campaign won't achieve anything. Overcrowding gets worse but these selfish gits keep cramming onto my train. #WhatIsWrongWithPeople'
