Ticket to ride
Each morning, about 90,000 passengers pass through Victoria Tube Station, one of the busiest yet smallest train stations in London, England. Infrastructure projects spanning more than 10 years and £700 million have helped enlarge ticket halls and redirect passenger tunnels. But transit sector experts warn more projects are sorely needed—and fast. British rail operator Network Rail estimates that by 2031 the capacity shortfall at one station alone is likely to be the equivalent of leaving 20 trainloads of people stranded per hour.
