London welcomes the Night Tube
All aboard… The Night Tube…
In the early hours of 12 September London will launch a night time Tube service. The Night Tube will support London’s 24-hour lifestyle by offering a round-the-clock service on Fridays and Saturdays on five lines: the Jubilee, Victoria, and most of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines. Demand has soared over recent years, with passenger numbers on Friday and Saturday nights up by around 70 per cent since 2000.
So that means no more getting the night bus after the likes of XOYO and The Nest closing at 4am or leaving Ministry of Sound or Fabric for of being stranded somewhere. Check out the map below.
Jubilee and Victoria lines – trains running on average every 10 minutes across the entire lines
Central line – trains running approximately every 10 minutes between White City and Leytonstone and approximately every 20 minutes between Ealing Broadway to White City and Leytonstone to Loughton/ Hainault
No service between North Acton and West Ruislip, Loughton and Epping and Woodford and Hainault
Northern line – trains running on average every 8 minutes between Morden and Camden Town and approximatively every 15 minutes from Camden Town to High Barnet / Edgware
No service on the Mill Hill East and Bank branches
Piccadilly line – trains running on average every 10 minutes between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5
No service on the Terminal 4 loop, or between Acton Town and Uxbridge
TFL also plan to expand the night time service to parts of the Metropolitan, Circle, District, and Hammersmith & City lines once their modernisation programmes are complete. Additionally, services could operate on parts of the London Overground by 2017 and the Docklands Light Railway by 2021.
