Know when the last trains and buses are
Double check when the last train is before you head on a night out – and always have spare money in case you need to get a taxi home.
Make sure your phone is fully charged
Top it up to 100% before you leave, or if you want to be super prepared, invest in a portable charger which can top you up on the go.
Bring snacks and entertainment
You might be stuck waiting around for public transport – make sure you have some snacks (fruit or cereal/granola bars) and some analogue entertainment (like a book!) to keep you from being bored and hungry.
