The Transport Economists’ Group celebrated 40 years in 2013
The Transport Economists’ Group, formed in 1973, provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to economists working in transport and others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.
Next meeting, Wednesday 26 April 2017 at 17:30 for 18:00
Mark Curran of Transport for London will speak on “Implementing London’s Night Tube”.
London’s Night Tube started operation on 19 August 2016 and now covers five of the Underground’s eleven lines. This presentation will describe the story of the Night Tube, starting with how the concept came about, and how the financial and economic forecasting was carried out when there was little precedent, and the wider strategic case. It will describe the issues faced and how they were overcome, as well as the cause and ultimate benefits from the delayed implementation in September 2015. Finally it will cover how the Night Tube has worked to date, demand and performance, and the evolving issues operating a consistent overnight service.
