London Public Transport
There are three forms of public transport throughout London; the Buses (which are no longer exclusively red) the Underground (often called the Tube, which is mainly an underground railway system) and the Trains (eg. Network South East and Docklands Light Railway) which are over-ground railway systems, often referred to as British Rail.
