|Free Underground Rides for Kids in London|
|Detail:|| The London Underground is getting more child-friendly. Starting April 2, children under 11 will be able to ride London's subway and the Docklands Light Railway free during off-peak hours. For the free travel, up to four children must be accompanied by a paying adult and ride after 9:30 a.m. on weekdays, or anytime on weekends or public holidays. |
The change is part of Mayor Ken Livingstone's highly promoted policy to improve young people's access to educational, sports and leisure activities throughout London. Free travel on buses for children under 16 was introduced last September and will be extended to full-time students under 18 this September.
