...The Tube will also run 24 hours a day on Fridays and Saturdays on some lines...
...It is also promising:
- Wi-fi coverage across all below-ground stations
- Disabled access at a further 27 stations
- Contactless bank card payment to make it easier to pay for tickets
- More new trains and updates for stations...
...The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT), which represents most of the station staff who would be affected, has already said it would "fight these plans with every tool at our disposal and that includes political, public and industrial campaigning on an unprecedented scale"...
