World Cup of Tube lines on the TfL Map! Thousands join Twitter game to determine which line is the best

Tube lines are going head-to-head in the World Cup of the Tube lines, which was launched for its second year on Twitter by transport YouTuber and commentator Geoff Marshall. The tournament has thousands of people voting in daily Twitter polls, with 11 Tube lines battling it out while also taking on the DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, cable cars and trams. The Jubilee line, last year’s finalist which lost by 35 votes to the Victoria line, is now taking on the Waterloo & City line in the quarter-final match posted on Wednesday. Just two hours after the poll was posted online, more than 1,300 people have voted on Mr Marshall’s Twitter account, with the Jubilee line on track to win with 69 per cent of the votes so far. In the knockout stage, the Central line beat Bakerloo, London Overground beat the trams, the Waterloo & City line beat the cable cars, DLR beat the Metropolitan line and the Jubilee defeated the Circle line. This year’s winner will be announced 24 hours after the final goes online next Tuesday, with Mr Marshall telling the Standard this year’s tournament may be Victoria vs Jubilee again. “The other big ones will be the Northern and Piccadilly and then the DLR vs Victoria, and strangely people really love the DLR – people are really passionate about it.” Speaking about his favourite line, the Crystal Palace resident said he commutes from Brixton on the Victoria and the latest round of upgrades may mean it has the winning edge. He said: “The Victoria line is fast, bright, new - the latest upgrades mean it’s less than 60 seconds between each train. “It does have days where it does fall apart, but when it’s working normally it’s brilliant. But the Jubilee could well beat it, it has been upgraded in the last year.” People can take part in the World Cup of the Tube lines on Mr Marshall’s Twitter account, where polls are posted daily at around 8am and are available for 24 hours.
