Found 18th Dec 2017Edited by:"matwalaboy"
Free travel will be available from 23:45 on 31 December 2017 to 04:30 on 1 January 2018 on London buses, Tube, Tram, DLR and London Overground.

Happens every year - more like a remind for folks in the city or visiting the city for the New Year festivities.

FYI The fireworks at the London Eye is now a ticketed event (has been for the past couple of years or so) and is sold out for the year

Brilliant idea and safer to get home to


It can get super busy ofcourse - but generally I find the people in good spirits (hic) and holding themselves ok. When we did this the first time we were naive to do with our daughter who was little enough to be in the buggy - but despite the rush, folks helped us get on, even vacated a seat - couldn't fault it.
Been like this for years. But good to highlight it

Absolutely - helps folks who haven't done this before or aren't aware of it.
Excellent, inebriation means we now can finally push all those tourists loitering in the tube out of the way.

Don't get in my way on NYE northerners.

Its a nice gesture on the part of the civic bodies to give tax paying public a well deserved break - atleast so I feel

Why is that - coz the workforce go on holidays/strike/something else? Not to mention TFL unions have a bad habit of calling for strikes around bank holidays too... luckily the Mayor's office so far have been ok with dealing with such calls.

No just the fact the services don't operate after a certain time on the eves, for a lot of the UK anyway, nothing to do with strikes and your post is helpful to those in the capital, merry Christmas!

I See ok. Merry Xmas to you and family too; have a great one
Train drivers on the LT underground service get around 3x wages for working the all night service on NYE.

Even on Boxing Day Train Drivers get an additional flat £350 on top of their usual pay for the day.

its all voulentary of course, but still who would want to work it for that pittance...????
I’ve used this a few years ago on NYE. Very crowded but once you’re on board and moving it’s fine. Heat added.
Very helpful. I never knew this

Getting on is the tricky bit for sure, after that the there is some sort of force that keeps you going and intact inside the compartments -;)

So we all wish - don't we my friend They do have to pay their staff (who don't come cheap) and maintain all the other systems around it - which again doesn't come free, that said though it can surely be more efficient and convenient - the rush hour crowds are just getting insane and enough to scare away the one time visitors/tourists to never set foot again on them
Nice post mate - Well done

I'm coming into London NYE
