Hot 100 2018 - Best for accessibility

 

Public Transport Accessibility Level (PTAL) score is a measure of public transport services across different areas of London; the higher the score, the better the access to public transport. Ongoing capacity and frequency improvements such as, the introduction of Crossrail, will greatly benefit an area’s PTAL score and has the potential to increase nearby property values. The City of London currently has the highest PTAL score at 6B (excellent). However, Croydon has the highest number of railway stations (including rail, underground and tram) with a total of 42.
