Learning To Be A Better Commuter


Commuting – with its pleasures (great outdoor ads) and pains (all of the other people and their odours) is something that’s woven into the fabric of British working life.

So I was interested to see that Transport for London have teamed up with London poets to to add a bit more excitement to your journey and also celebrate London’s thriving poetry community on National Poetry Day, Thursday 3rd October.

TFL will have Poets in Residence at nine major Tube stations, writing topical verses (in their own unique style) on the station whiteboards and performing in the busking spots. There will also being displaying a series of poems in billboards, like the ones below:

All of which adds up to a nicer way of reminding people how to behave themselves when they’re out and about on the capital’s transport networks.

More details on the scheme can be found here.

Have a great week,
