London Underground ‘could eventually run during the day’
LONDON Underground could eventually run an uninterrupted service for up to 18 hours a day, it has been claimed.
Setting out its long term plans, Transport for London believes that at some point in the future the capital’s tube system could offer a regular service, between 6am and midnight, on all lines, including the Northern Line.
A TfL spokesman said: “Londoners are out and about all hours, so we thought, why not provide them with a service that runs all day long?
“It might seem revolutionary to have a transport system without regular breakdowns, strikes and really vile, horrible overcrowding, but this is an idea whose time has come.
“We’ve called this concept the ‘Day Tube’. Someday, somehow, it could happen. Probably by accident.”
Commuter Francesca Johnson added: “I want to congratulate TfL for this magnificent vision, particularly as they are already doing the very best they possibly can.”
