London Underground: Full List of Underground Stations to Capture for Google Street View | Science and technology news


London’s busiest tube stations will soon appear on Google Street View.

A camera placed in a backpack will capture 360-degree images from inside 30 Tube stations including Bank, King’s Cross St Pancras and Waterloo.

Google and Transport for London (TfL) hope the images will help people plan their journeys better, particularly those with accessibility needs or those unfamiliar with travel in the capital.

The images will begin to be collected by Google in the next few weeks between 10:00 and 16:00 to avoid peak times.

All faces captured by the cameras will be blurred before being published in 2024.

Sarah-Jayne Williams, director of global product partnerships at Google Maps, said: “For the first time, users will be able to explore the capital’s busiest stations like never before and plan their journeys.

We hope this will help everyone feel more comfortable during their travels, especially those with accessibility needs.”
