Tube to run an hour later at the weekend from 2015

After the success of extended running hours during the Olympics, the head of the tube has announced plans for trains to run later on Fridays and Saturdays from 2015.

Transport for London’s Mike Brown said: “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?”

Amen, Mr Brown. Amen. What do you think of the proposals?
