Last week we learned that TfL has been spending a casual £600,000 on advertising for the night tube service. Sounds like a lot of cash to be throwing around, right? Especially given that the nocturnal service doesn't currently exist. But that could all be about to change because the ongoing night tube negotiations have just had a major breakthrough.
The RMT union has recommended to its 10,000 members that they should accept the latest pay and conditions deal that the London Underground has offered for the new service. The union members will start voting on February 11. But don't delete your Uber app just yet, as there are still three other unions – Unite, TSSA and Aslef – that haven't decided. Still, it looks like the endless will-they-won't-they saga of the night tube could finally be over. Fingers crossed!
In other travel news, TfL is taking over suburban train services in south London.
