Londoners will be able to travel throughout the night from this weekend with the launch of the 24-hour Tube service. For the first time in the London Underground's 150-year history, trains will run at night, enabling passengers in the capital to get home without paying extra for taxis or waiting for night buses. It is expected that the new service will also boost London’s economy and jobs.
First services will launch on the Central and Victoria lines on 19 August and will be available on Fridays and Saturdays. Services on the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines will follow later this year.
Speaking in May, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: "The Night Tube is absolutely vital to my plans to support and grow London's night-time economy – creating more jobs and opportunities for all Londoners."
