Every day, millions of commuters use the London underground system to travel around. For many, it's a part of their daily routine, no more inspiring than a walk to the bathroom. The majority of travelers have their faces buried in books and ears shut off from the world with headphones. But surprisingly, as it turns out, you can come across some really inspiring messages while on your way to the tube. Some of them encourage people to speak out on invisible illnesses, some are brilliantly clever puns, while some show the day's temperatures that are "100% accurate, 41% of the time," with Beverly Hills being scorching hot at 90210.
But who's behind these little poems and lovely messages? Turns out, it's a masked duo: two guys that started the All On The Board project back in 2017 while working at North Greenwich station. They are station assistants for the London Underground and were working at North Greenwich. Craig David was performing at The O2 Arena on that evening and the two guys were singing some Craig David songs, came up with a little poem for Craig David fans, and decided to write it on a Service Information Board. It started from there.
Many of their messages and poems have been widely shared on social media by many people—singer Katy Perry included—while All On The Board's Instagram account has almost half a million followers.
