Here’s the full list:

  • Overcrowding 37%
  • Not moving down the carriage 32%
  • The cost of travel 26%
  • Loud music through headphones 16%
  • People eating 15%
  • People who litter 12%
  • Hot temperatures 9%
  • Standing on the left of the escalator 8%
  • Tube delays 8%
  • Other commuters 6%
  • Nothing annoys me 5%
  • People doing make up 2%
  • Tube staff 2%

The survey also asked people what they thought could be improved, with things like double decker trains, an outer circle line and discounts all being in Londoners top wants.
