One of the objectives of my Transport Strategy is the provision of improved early morning and late night services in London. Transport for London are working with the SRA on methods of developing such services, either as specific initiatives or through the wider objectives of seeking such benefits offered as part of individual franchise renewals.I also propose to detail in my Directions and Guidance to the SRA a requirement to promote the development of improved early morning and late evening services. .
