Incident response on the Tube to be boosted under 'Blue Light' trial
The specialist unit that responds to emergency incidents on the Tube network will be able to cut through London's traffic more quickly under a trial being carried out with the British Transport Police (BTP).
The trial aims to halve response times, and therefore increase network reliability, and means that Transport for Londons (TfL's) Emergency Response Unit (ERU) vehicles will travel under the same 'Blue Light' conditions used by police, ambulance and fire services.
This will enable a quicker response to incidents - enhancing passenger safety and reducing disruption and delays across the network.
