Keith Prince AM: Mayor must reopen Night Tube
Sadiq Khan must reopen the Night Tube in London to give women and girls a safer way home, urge City Hall Tories.
The service was suspended at the start of the pandemic, but the Mayor has given not fixed date for when it will resume.
Keith Prince AM, Transport Spokesman, commented: "As London's nightlife returns, it's essential the Mayor reopens the Night Tube to give women and girls a safer way home. The service not only provides Londoners with more choice on how to travel at night, it provides a better lit transport option instead of waiting for a bus on dark streets.
"But, the Mayor must do more to make women and girls feel safe on public transport. All Tube lines need to be fitted with onboard CCTV to tackle sexual assaults. The Mayor should also provide free advertising space to the 'report it to stop it' campaign to tackle the 90 per cent of unwanted sexual behaviour that goes unreported.
"It's not good enough for the Mayor to say London's streets are not safe for women and girls. He's responsible for policing and transport in our city. Londoners want to see action, not press statements."
