Friday 7th December 2012
Tubes will be running until 4.30am on New Year's Day.
Transport for London say there will be free travel again on the tube, DLR, buses, London Overground and Tramlink from 11.45pm on New Year's Eve.
Diageo is sponsoring the free late night transport again this year , which will see a total of 561,496 miles will be travelled to get around 2.5 million people home between 11.45pm and 4.30am.
Andrew Cowan, country director for Diageo GB, commented: "This is a time for great celebrations, especially after what has been a tremendous year for Great Britain. As always we want to remind everyone that the best celebrations are those that are enjoyed responsibly.
"Getting home safely is the conclusion to a great night out, and we hope our campaign this year will encourage everyone, on New Year's Eve and throughout the festive period, not to let good times go bad by drinking too much."
This year for the first time Diageo will also be sponsoring free travel in Edinburgh for the famous Hogmanay celebrations.
