This is the home page for London's Transport Choir. We are an amateur workplace choir whose main aim is to bring together colleagues from across the transport industry to sing at events and concerts. Membership is open to anyone working in or with an interest in the transport industry in London. Singers include operational staff, new graduates, office workers and retirees from both National Rail and Transport for London, and their customers, and friends of choir members.
