How to get home after the tube challenge
So, you've raised your money and done the tube challenge and now it's 1:30am and Upminster isn't quite as nice as you expected. How are you going to get home?
Believe it or not, Geoff & Neil didn't consider how they were going to get home when they broke the world record. But trust us - it's well worth thinking about in advance.
Get a Lift
Currently there are three cars planned to be at Upminster. Each of the cars is heading towards South London although they may deviate slightly depending upon where you want to go. There are probably a maximum of ten spaces left - if anyone wants one then contact Geoff asap.
If you are being picked up and can offer a spare seat to a fellow tube challenger then let us know and we will put you in contact with someone who wants to go in the same direction.
Get the Nightbus
The Nightbus is probably the easiest way to get home if you are heading for central London. The nearest Nightbus stop is in Romford so you are going to need to get a Taxi to Romford.
Get a Taxi
The most convenient taxi company is Station Cars, just 20 seconds from the station down the side by the car park. Their number is 01708 229400. They will take you to wherever you want to go, and have quoted the following (approximate) prices.
If you are intending to get a taxi then feel free to ask around on either before hand or on the day as there will probably be someone else going in the same direction as you and that way you can share the cost of the taxi.
Don't get a train/tube
The first trains/tubes are not until around 5am and you will not be allowed to wait around on the platforms or waiting rooms.
Finally, bear in mind that in order to make the last District Line train to Upminster you need to be at:
