Tube to change ‘ladies and gentlemen’ announcements


The “ladies and gentlemen” greeting on Tube announcements is to be scrapped, Transport for London (TfL) has announced.

London Underground staff have been told to say “hello everyone” in an effort to become more gender-neutral.

TfL said the move was to ensure all passengers felt “welcome”.

LGBT campaign group Stonewall welcomed the decision, which was supported by London mayor Sadiq Khan at a session of Mayor’s Question Time last month.
