Last week TfL announced a delay to the Night Tube whilst it tries to reach an acceptable settlement with the Unions representing the staff. At the same time as this announcement was made, TfL also quietly confirmed:
– They are going to close ALL remaining ticket offices. This means 900 people will lose their jobs and passengers will have to use the automatic machines located in stations. This is disappointing especially in locations where tourists need more help.
– The planned changes to night buses, which will reduce frequencies, will go ahead in some areas despite the Night Tube (which was supposed to take up the slack), not being launched yet.
So, there are lots of changes to London’s transport systems over the next few months and I will make sure you keep up to date with them via the blog.
