T5 to T2 on XMAS

Merry Christmas everyone, I believe LHR becomes a bit of a mess on XMAS day?
How does one transit from T5 to T2 with no Tube or HEX?

Are the buses working? I mean there must be solutions in place for this, it's crazy there are no trains on XMAS day, is it because of the unions? I believe the RMT is the last of the powerful unions left in the UK.

He's going to be landside as its like 10 GBP cheaper for him to take an Uber to T5 instead of T2 due to him coming from the south.

The Heathrow Express transfer is operating every 20 minutes between T2/T3 and T5, and the same for T4 too.

Seriously?!! Your friend is getting an Uber, but is worried about the incremental cost of going to T2 vs T5???

If you take an Uber from Egham to Terminal 5, it is 6 GBP cheaper than an Uber from Egham to Terminal 2 as you have to go round the M25 and M4.

Well he is parking for free in Egham on the street, and an Uber is 11 GBP instead of 17 GBP. He is travelling on his on salary , so yes I think saving 6 GBP is worth it. T5 to T2 is free with the bus, why throw away 6 GBP?

Bizarre... The wine is taking hold of me. Where does Egham come into this?

He is parking his car there for free, I told him not to pay the Billionaire Heathrow Parking Charges as he is gone for like 8 days. I used to study at Royal Holloway, so know the area really well and you can park on the street without any permit requirements.
