A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Revellers expected to descend on central London in their hundreds of thousands to celebrate the New Year can look forward to free travel on the capital’s Tube network.
After partial closures throughout the festive period, Transport for London (TfL) said it the “vast majority” of its trains and Tubes will be running throughout the night.
Ahead of the capital’s major New Year’s Eve events, including the Mayor’s annual fireworks celebration by the London Eye, TfL will alter its services to help party-goers get around.
Here the Evening Standard explains how the city’s rail and Tube networks will be effected as Londoner’s prepare to bring in 2018 across the city.
When will travel be free, and does it apply to all lines?
Customers using TfL’s Tubes and trains will be able to travel for free between 11.45pm on New Year’s Eve and 4.30am the next morning.
This includes the entire Tube network, Overground, buses, the DLR and trams.
TfL said all of its Tube lines will be open, and will run services throughout Sunday night and into New Year’s Day, with the exception of some planned closures.
All lines, including the Central, Circle and District lines and the DLR, will run a night service as revellers descend on Westminster for the Mayor’s firework event.
But there will be no service on TfL Rail. Instead, rail replacement buses will run throughout the night – calling at all stations a part from Liverpool Street and Maryland.
The London Overground will be partially closed, but some of its lines will be operating all night. There will be no services on the Gospel Oak to Barking, Romford to Upminster, Edmonton Green to Cheshunt routes.
