Night Tube 'for the rich'

22 September 2015

TSSA leader Manuel Cortes has responded to research by travel app company MapWay suggesting that the proposed night tube will only benefit Londoners who can afford an extra £100,000 on their mortgage.

Manuel Cortes said: “Our members have consistently supported the introduction of Night Tube. However, like me, they will be astonished to learn that its delivery is designed to benefit the great and the good.

"The mayor needs to commit to delivering a night tube that is available and affordable to all Londoners. Let's face it, when it comes to paying for it, the wealthy won't be digging any deeper in their pockets as the costs will be equally shared by all tube users through rising fares and ticket office closures."
