The London Underground is the beating heart of London. It is also its venous system, carrying its people, its lifeblood, around the city.
Tube Heartbeat is a map of traffic on the London Underground. It is an animated flow map which shows how traffic at individual stations rises and falls over the course of a single day. As the animation plays the map of the London Underground beats like a living heart as the people of London travel to and from work and across the city.
Running totals above the map show the total number of arrivals, departures, interchanges and total number of journeys throughout the day. You can also select individual stations on the map to view a chart of these same totals for the individual Underground station over the course of an average weekday.
