Unit twenty two

The underground

Text

After their visit to the museum of the Bank of England the Group returns to the hotel by underground.

Londoners call their underground train network "the tube". It covers the whole city. It's a fast, convenient and easy way to travel. Stations are never far apart, especially in central London. Each of the eleven lines has its own name and a distinctive color to aid rec­ognition.

There are two kinds of tube tickets: single and return tickets sold at tube stations. Besides they sell Travelcards for the tube, buses and the Docklands Light Railway, or DLR. Travelcards can be bought at underground stations, Travel Information Centres, British Rail sta­tions and selected newsagents. Travelcards are valid either for one day or seven days.

At the tube station the participants buy single tickets and come up to the electronic gate. They put the tickets, magnetic strip down, into the slot machine on the right side of the gate. The gate opens and after removing the ticket each passes the gate. Then they go down by moving stairs.

David: Keep you tickets until your journey is completed.

Sergei: Why is it necessary?

David: Well, you see, sometimes inspectors check them. Be­sides you have to leave many stations in the same way as you get in. You should put the ticket into the slot machine again to have the gate open. Otherwise you won't be able to leave the station.

Sergei: I see. Thank you.

Ivan: This line on the wall is green. I suppose this corridor will take us to the green line.

David: You are quite right. We are to take the green line to get to Baker Stieet station.

Vladimir: By the way, can I get to Piccadily Circus by this line?

David: Let me see, no, I'm afiaid not. You'll have to change trains at Charring Cross.

Vladimir: Thank you I'll remember it. Charring Cross.

David: Be carefull. Don't be lost

Vladimir: Thank you. I have got a map of London and there is the Underground map here too. I have heard so much about Piccadily. And I like the song about it. One of our pop stars sings it. The song is fantastic. And 1 should see the street of Picadilly with my own eyes!
