Listen on

Episode notes

It’s all happening on the tube. As passenger numbers appear to return to normal following the pandemic lockdown, we’ve now got clarity on how much the new Crossrail will cost us to use… and it looks like it’ll be popular with those heading to and from Heathrow. 

The Evening Standard’s revealed fast train travel will cost almost 60 percent less on the new line than on the Heathrow Express. 

Meanwhile, as a few of you may have noticed, the underground’s getting busier again. Research is suggesting it’s just about back to what it was before Covid-19.

The Evening Standard’s City Hall Editor, Ross Lydall, explains everything you need to know.
