Rush hour, crush hour, push hour, most expensive hour!
Just when you though being pressed into someone’s armpit first thing in the morning couldn’t be any more degrading, you discover that you’re paying more for the pleasure! Peak times on the tube, 7 – 10am, 5 – 7pm are not only the busiest but also most expensive, unless you’re into paying to be trodden on, avoid these hours at all costs whenever possible. Still don’t want to get a bike?
