Poor Show

The Tube will run just an hour later during the Olympics and there will be not be a 24 hour service, transport chiefs have said.  The schedule to cope with 20 million extra journeys was outlined as TfL opened pay talks covering next year with unions.

Transport for London said the last trains will leave the Olympic Park at about 01:00 each day and central London at 02:00 and the service will wind down by )2:30- an hour later than usual.

A round-the-clock service remains possible only after the opening ceremony, which may finish as late as midnight.

The Central, District, Hammersmith & City and Jubilee lines serving venues in east London will operate extra trains each day between 22:00 and 23:30 to take spectators home, while on  Sundays, the Tube will start up to 45 minutes earlier at about 06:00.

So much for encouraging people to use public transport.
