Amid news that Uber will be increasing their prices and continued pressure to reopen the Night Tube in full, we want to know if you’ve found travelling late at night difficult recently.

The Victoria and Central lines will be reopening at weekends from November 27, and the Night Overground between Highbury and Islington and New Cross Gate from December 17.

But today Sadiq Khan was urged to set out plans to reopen all Night Tube lines, including the Northern, Piccadilly, and Jubilee lines.

Uber also announced that their prices will rise by 10% in Greater London from 11 November - the first time since 2017 that the app has raised base pricing in the capital.

Women in particular have reported feeling unsafe late at night due to difficulty finding a viable route home.

Have you experienced this yourself, or do you know of others who have struggled lately? Let us know in the comments for the chance to be featured on the ES website tomorrow.
