I usually stay in Hampstead when in London. When the weather doesn't allow me to walk into town (Oxford Street area), I ride the tube or bus. Typically, it is costs around four pounds ($8.00). That is a lot of money considering the distance. I usually purchase a day pass that allows me to ride the tube or bus in sectors one and two which is a radius of around 5 miles of central London for four pounds, fifty. That way I can ride around as much as I wish in the two sectors. I do believe that London has the most expensive travel service in the world. A big secret that I will share, when traveling around the U.K. use the National Express service. You can book seats and it is about half the cost of all other transportation. Anyway, back to Mecklenburg, it would be great if the authorities would go ahead and start working on rail service for all sections of the county. If it doesn't happen now when there is some room for development, they will be sorry.

Cool cost

I too am a Brit from London.
Travel used to be inexpensive many years ago and i would use it all the time for school, etc.
I go home once per year and now my parents have moved out of London, it costs a lot of money to travel in to London.
Also, London is not the same as it used to be.

I married an American and have now been divorced from him for several years.
I would not go back home to England.

It would be nice if Meck County could one day have a larger public transportation operation going on. I have used the light rail a couple of times and actually liked it.
