London gets free New Year’s Eve travel

Not that he needs a free travel pass, and is more used to a somewhat quicker means of travel, Lewis Hamilton is promoting Diageo’s sponsorship of free travel on London’s Tubes, buses, trams (and some trains) this New Year’s Eve.

It is all part of a bid to encourage party goers to get home safely this festive season.  Diageo is of course eight of the top 20 premium spirits brands plus Guinness.

The Responsible Drinking feature across the TfL network including on the Underground, buses and at Tube stations.  In addition, Tube travellers at selected central London stations will receive top tips and free bottles of water on some of the busiest party nights of the year as part of Diageo’s ongoing commitment to a safer night out. 

A number of celebrations will be taking place across the Capital including the spectacular fireworks display on the Southbank organised by the Mayor of London.  Londoners will benefit from free travel from 23:45 on New Year’s Eve until 04:30 on New Year’s Day. Tube, DLR and tram services will run all night on New Year’s Eve, as well as night buses and 24-hour bus routes as usual.  Free travel will also apply to London Overground trains running after 23:45 until last train times. www.tfl.gov.uk
