    The London Underground commonly known as the Tube is considered as the oldest underground railway notwork in the world.  The London Underground have 270 stations and its tracks’ length is about 402 kilometres, second longest metro system in the world after the Shanghai Metro. It holds the highest number of stations. In 2007, it was recorded that more than one billion passenger journeys were made, It is considered  as the third busiest metro system in Europe after Paris and Moscow.Its first section opened in 1863 is now the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan linesa rapid transit system serving a large part of Greater London and some parts of Buckinghamshire, Essex and Hertfordshire in England.  The London Underground  started its electric train in 1890 and the Uk became the first operater of electric trains.

    Many private companies participated in the construction of the earlier railway lines of the present London Underground network and  became an important part of an integrated transport system. For the convenience of commuters and for smooth railway functions, the London Passenger Transport Board (LPTB) or London Transport was created in 1933. The underground network became a single corporation in 1985, when the UK Government established London Underground Limited (LUL). Now London Underground Limited ( LUL) has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL), responsible for most aspects of the transport system in Greater London, which is run by  London Mayer appointed  board and a commissioner.
