    va salut,

    pentru ca toate topicurile sunt vechi de 2 ani in sus, m-am gandit sa deschid un topic despre transportul in londra.

    pe mine unul ma intereseaza la cat ajunge un abonament pe luna pentru transportul in comun, zonele 1-6 si ce acte sunt necesare pentru a face abonamentul si, binenteles, unde anume se poate incheia abonamentul.

    am inteles ca e destul de scump sa circuli incarcandu-ti cartela, 1,30 de prin zona 2-3 pana la 2,40 din zona 6, catre londra.

    multumesc.

    Eu circul foarte rar cu metroul, dar cu siguranta tarifele sunt mai mari decat atat.

    licurici, multam frumos! m-am tot holbat pe site aseara dar n-am gasit lista asta de preturi. JESUS, 180 lire pe luna pentru 1-6! probabil pare putin, dar daca-i pui pe langa cheltuielile cu chiria, mancarea si altele.. e enorm!

    multam inca odata! cred ca raman la masina totusi.. :)

    In functie de ruta pe care o vei alege, a face naveta cu masina intre zona 1 - 6, e mai degraba o misiune imposibila.

    Ai incercat si varianta cu autobuzul? Ca un bus pass e mult mai ieftin decat un abonament la metrou. Intr-adevar, cu autobuzul faci mult mai mult, dar credca si cu masina..

    Bafta

    Eh, si tu acuma albea...omu' se plangea de bani, nu de timp.. -limba-
    Se mai fac si compromisuri..te trezesti mai dimineata, ajungi mai tarziu acasa, dar platesti sub 50 lire(daca nu ma insel) pe luna pe naveta si mai si poti trage un pui de somn, pe cand daca conduci....
    Cunosc persoane care au facut naveta, zona 1-6 cu autobuzul si din Edgware pana in Marble arch faci numai 1 ora cu autobuzul..
    Acu depinde unde sta si unde vrea sa ajunga in centru..eu am dat si o alta alternativa(in caz ca nu a fost luata in calcul)..decizia ii apartine in totalitate

    Bafta

    In Romania obisnuiam sa merg la servici cu metroul, dar tot faceam 1 ora si jumatate dus si same intors. Asa ca...nimic nu poate fi mai rau decat in Bucuresti, sa mergi de la Trapezului pana la Cora Militari.

    Un sfat amical: daca ai un job bun si stabil, muta-te cat mai aproape.

    E de preferat sa dai un ban in plus, dar sa castigi 2-3 ore pe zi care pot insemna odihna, un film...etc....per total e vorba de calitatea vietii.

    Cel putin asta functioneaza pt mine.

    Foarte bine punctat "parteneru" . Mai ales daca ai copii acasa care te asteapta la o plimbare in parc sau o scurta joaca. Timpul petrecut cu familia este foarte pretios.Cel putin pentru mine asa este.

    Pentru Luna House (cladirea unde este Home Office):

    TRAIN SERVICES

    Lunar House is within a short walking distance of both West Croydon and East Croydon train stations (see the Walking section for a map and directions).

    Trains operated by First Capital Connect which travel towards Brighton stop at East Croydon. These trains pass through the following stations in London: West Hampstead Thameslink, Kentish Town, King's Cross Thameslink, Farringdon, City Thameslink, Blackfriars and London Bridge. Note that the Thameslink stations at West Hampstead and King's Cross are a short walk away from the other railway or underground stations with the same name. There are some trains running on this line throughout the night. The night trains stop at West Hampstead Thameslink, King's Cross Thameslink and Blackfriars, but not at all of the other London stations on the line. Approximate train journey times: West Hampstead to East Croydon: 40 minutes; London Bridge to East Croydon: 15 minutes. For timetables and travel details, see First Capital Connect's website: There are frequent trains operated by Southern Railway from Victoria train station in London to either West Croydon or East Croydon. This may be particularly convenient if you are travelling by coach to London, as most coaches finish at Victoria Coach Station (see: Travel/Transport/Coach) (if you are travelling from Oxford, note that there are coach services operating throughout the night). During the night there are trains each hour from Victoria to East Croydon. Approximate train journey times: Victoria to East Croydon: 20 minutes; Victoria to West Croydon: 35 minutes. For timetables and travel details, see Southern Railway's website: .

    Southern Railway also provides a limited train service from Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London Bridge to East Croydon.

    For general information about travelling by train in the UK, see: Travel/Transport/Train.


    BUS SERVICES

    If you are living in London and you want to arrive very early in Croydon, you may consider taking a night bus to one of the railway stations from which there are night trains to East Croydon (see the Train section). Alternatively, you can take a night bus service to Croydon. The N68 leaves from Tottenham Court Road (stopping at Holborn, Aldwych, Waterloo and Elephant & Castle), or the N159 leaves from Marble Arch (stopping at Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Westminster, Lambeth North and Brixton). It may be easiest to get off at West Croydon bus station, but you can also get off at the next stop on Wellesley Road. The journey usually takes about 60 minutes.

    If you are travelling during the day, there is no direct bus service from central London. The best route is probably to take a bus first to Brixton underground station (for example, taking the number 2 from Victoria, or number 3 from Oxford Circus): this will take about 30 minutes. At Brixton, change to a number 109 to West Croydon bus station (or the next stop, Whitgift Centre): this part of the journey will take about another 50 minutes. Buy a one-day bus pass if you do not already have a bus pass. Going by bus during the daytime is cheap, but it is much slower than taking the train.

    See the Walking section for details of how to get to Lunar House from the West Croydon or Whitgift Centre bus stops.
    For links you can use to check bus routes and timetables and for other information about London buses, see: Travel/Transport/London/Buses.


    TRAM SERVICES

    You may choose to stay overnight in Wimbledon before coming to Croydon, or you may find it convenient to start your journey by travelling to Wimbledon by underground (the District line) or by train (from Waterloo). The most convenient way to travel to Croydon from Wimbledon is to take the tram service number 1 (operated by Tramlink) from Wimbledon towards Elmers End. Get off either at West Croydon or at the next stop, Wellesley Road.

    If you arrive by train at East Croydon station and do not wish to walk to Lunar House (a 10 minute walk), you can also take a short tram ride. Cross carefully to the other side of the road in front of the station: you can take either tram service number 2 (towards Beckenham Junction) or number 3 (towards New Addington). Get off about 5 minutes later at West Croydon, or at the next stop Wellesley Road.

    See the Walking section for details of how to walk from East Croydon, West Croydon or Wellesley Road tram stops to Lunar House.
    For more information about how to use Tramlink, see: Travel/Transport/London/Buses.

    WALKING TO LUNAR HOUSE

    While you are walking to Lunar House, look for signs like the one below. The Home Office is the government department which deals with visa applications from people who are already in the UK. Look both ways when you cross a road: trams may travel in either direction. Use the subways to cross Wellesley Road (in British English subways are passages which allow people to walk underneath roads). This is a busy road: people have been killed while trying to cross it directly.

    Directions from East Croydon train station:
    (estimated walking time: 10 minutes)

    - When you leave the East Croydon train station, turn right.
    - You should be able to see Lunar House (see the photo in the Introduction section) in the distance, on your right.
    - Cross Dingwall Road
    - Follow the road (George Street) down the hill until you reach a busy main road (Wellesley Road)

    - Cross Walpole Road
    - You will come to the tram stop called Wellesley Road
    - Keep walking along Wellesley Road. You will see a blue sign outside a hotel called the Jury Inn.
    - Cross Lansdowne Road. You will see the Fairfield Hotel
    - You will come to a bus stop called Whitgift Centre (this is the indoor shopping centre you can see on the other side of the road).
    - Keep walking along Wellesley Road, and cross Sydenham Road
    - You should now be able to see Lunar House, the large building on your right
    - There are public toilets on your left


    Directions from West Croydon train station:
    (estimated walking time: 5 minutes)

    - When you leave the West Croydon train station, turn left and walk as far as the junction between this road (London Road) and Station Road.
    - Turn left and start walking up Station Road
    - You will come to the tram stop called West Croydon
    - Cross the road and keep walking up Station Road
    - You will pass the entrance to the West Croydon bus station on your right
    - Keep walking along the right hand side of Station Road until you reach the end of the road
    - Turn right along the busy main road (this is Wellesley Road)
    - You should be able to see Lunar House (see the photo in the Introduction section) on the other side of the road, on your left
    - Go down into a subway and use this to cross safely to the other side of Wellesley Road
    - Continue walking along Wellesley Road in the same direction as before
    - Cross the road called Bedford Park
    - Lunar House is the building in front of you
    - Note that there are some public toilets on your right
