Transport bosses say the service will transform night time journeys for millions of Londoners and tourists by around 20 minutes from the average trip time. They also predict it will boost the capital’s economy by £360 million and help support around 2,000 permanent jobs.
The following services will run on Friday nights and the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings:
- Central line: trains will run between Ealing Broadway and Hainault;
- Jubilee line: trains will run on the entire line;
- Northern line: trains will run on the entire line except on the Mill Hill East and Bank branches;
- Piccadilly line: trains will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5;
- Victoria line: trains will run on the entire line.
Gareth Powell, London Underground’s Director of Strategy & Service Development, said: “The introduction of the Night Tube is a historic step in our modernisation of the Underground.
“The Night Tube map shows our customers exactly when and where they can use this landmark service, which will make their late night journeys quicker and easier than ever before.
“As well making life easier for people, the Night Tube will also boost London’s night-time economy – supporting thousands of jobs and stimulating hundreds of millions of pounds in economic growth.”
