London is set to grow and prosper in the future, with an increase of more than 800,000 people and over 900,000 extra jobs forecast by 2025. This means a projected increase of four million journeys in the city every day.
The challenge is to improve London's public transport system in order to accommodate this growth, but at the same time manage overcrowding, reduce traffic congestion and cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. 'Coming Soon to London' is a Museum display that features some of the most important transport projects expected before 2025.
London Transport Museum aspires to be a centre for debate about transport futures and the environment. Climate change is the biggest single challenge facing London, and all of us as individuals, companies and global citizens have a role to play in tackling it.
'Green Futures' is an interactive space in the Museum which allows you to explore different scenarios for London's future, according to how we manage our carbon footprint. See how the individual choices we make today could affect the rate of future climate change.
