TFL ANNOUNCES CHANGES FOR TUBE FROM 2015

Tube trains will run throughout the night at weekends, London Underground has announced – but most tube ticket offices will go and 750 jobs will be lost. From 2015, trains will run on Friday and Saturday nights on core parts of the tube network, as part of a package of measures for a “21st-century tube service”, including direct payment by bank cards. However, unions and Labour hit out at moves to close ticket offices and cut jobs. London Underground says the move to redeploy staff will make them “available to give the best personal and face-to-face service to customers”. According to Transport for London (TfL), fewer than 3% of tube journeys now start with passengers visiting a ticket office.
