Remember back in 2011 how Oxford Circus Tube station was nearly renamed Oxford Landing after a wine brand offered a sponsorship deal?
Well back then, the deal fizzled out after a public outrage. But you might soon find youself jumping onto the Ben & Jerry’s Jubilee line from Burberry Bond Street station.
Why? Well, the Conservative group on the London Assembly has released a report calling for sponsored Tube stations or Tube lines to generate extra income.
The report suggests that the money could help allow fares to be frozen. In a poll carried out by the group, 74% of Londoners backed the move if it meant a reduction in fares.
Should we allow London landmarks to be renamed? Leave your comments below….
