CHANGES: London Underground to extend service to 2am
LONDON UNDERGROUND tube services are set to be extended until 2am at the weekends, it has been announced.
From 2015 Londoners will be able to use the capital’s underground network up to an hour later on Fridays and Saturdays under the new reported proposal.
TfL executive Mike Brown told The Evening Standard: "The Tube is the artery of London and we want to make the city’s heart beat strongly and later on into the night."
"It will be a real benefit for London’s night-time economy, either for people working late or enjoying themselves.
"If people want to buy that extra meal, cup of coffee or pint of beer, why wouldn’t we want to encourage that?
"Following the success of the Olympics and the historic records of reliability, there is a great opportunity to consider what more we could do with our hours — particularly late running on Fridays and Saturdays."
