Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Underground currently serves 275 stations and runs over 253 miles (408 km) of lines[1]. There are also a number of stations and tunnels that are now closed. In 2004-2005, total passenger rides or journeys reached a record level of 976 million, an average of 2.67 million per day.
If you think you can deploy metal detectors and scanners on the London Underground network I have a bridge to sell you ;-)

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
