(But only from Liverpool Street to Kings Cross)
Tube strikes are a great time for PR stunts because why not?
Travel app Ample is going to offer Londoners a free ride home on a red double decker bus on the day of the Tube strike.
The bus will ferry commuters from Liverpool Street to Kings Cross at no charge between 4-8pm on Wednesday 5th August.
All you need to do is follow Ample’s twitter account @getample.
“We want it to be as easy to hop into a taxi as it is a bus,” says Josef Wasinski, CEO of Ample, a London-based start-up that is Ample is working to develop a ‘digital Oyster’ app for use in black cabs.
“That’s why we are using an iconic red London bus to promote the launch of our revolutionary taxi app,” he added.
