Re the so-called 'battle of the free evening papers' - there is no battle, in my opinion. Save that of trying to get past the people being paid to hand them out.
London Lite couldn't hold my attention when there was no competition, and my alternative was reading the adverts on the tube (this is not hyperbole - I was in this situation last week, due to poor planning on the book provision front). thelondonpaper, though, is fairly interesting and gets bonus points for trying to draw attention to the Astoria situation in the first issue.
I think that's all the commute-based news I was going to talk about.
Except that TfL have finally got their customer charter claims page working, so every time you're delayed 20 minutes or more it's a little easier to fill out a claim form.
