'Integration' of urban public passenger transport is all the rage. With few exceptions, the urban (and usually underground) lines in big cities and the suburban routes of the main-line railways are under separate managements. Many municipal and other urban transport authorities publish maps showing bus, tram, pre-metro and their own urban railway railway networks. Despite the need for co-operation in all modes of transport and indeed active co-operation in fare fixing and through-ticket issue, one seldom sees maps that show all transport routes. In many cases, more particularly in such vast networks as those of London, New York and Tokyo, it is hard enough to show all rail routes, let alone buses or trams. Few system maps issued by urban railway operators show in any detail the suburban routes and stations of the main-line railways. The best exception to date is a new London Transport map in poster and pocket and pocket folder form that shows all LT and British Rail suburban lines and all the more than 600 passenger stations in an area extending 25 miles from the centre.
