Are you looking for London transport jobs?

London is the largest metro area in all of the European Union. With a population between 12 and 14 million people there needs to be a flawless transport system. To accommodate for such a large number of commuters London has more forms of transport than most cities. These include the underground or 'tube' as it's known locally, the buses, trams and travelling along the River Thames. Because of this there are also more London transport jobs than a majority of cities.

The most commonly known transport job in London has to be the bus drivers.
