  • TfL and Yamaha Music launch ‘#Platform88’ to place pianos across the Tube network
  • Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Tokio Myers launches the initiative with a gig at Tottenham Court Road station
  • Three pianos will be placed at various stations over two years and then given to charity

Transport for London (TfL), in partnership with Yamaha, today launched a programme which will make three pianos available at stations for customers to play. The first, placed at Tottenham Court Road, was launched with a performance by multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Tokio Myers.

The two-year project named #Platform88 takes its name from the number of keys on a standard piano and provides opportunities for musicians to play and entertain their fellow passengers.
