The five major Tube lines to run all-night weekend journeys across London announced

tirsdag 23 juni 2015

Travellers in central and greater London will be able to travel across the city on five of the major underground Tube lines 24 hours a day from 5am Friday till midnight on Sunday from 12 September.

Transport for London (TfL) launched its official Night Tube map, designed to show passengers clearly which Tube lines and stations will operate 24-hour services, transforming night-time journeys across London for millions of people.

Londoners and visitors to London can travel on the following lines on Friday and Saturday nights right through to 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.

As the most visited city in the world the new services will help to maintain London's status as a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit. Stations will remain staffed and controlled at all times and staff will be available to help passengers with any queries.

Trains across the five lines will run every ten to 20 minutes and TfL estimates the Night Tube will transform night-time journeys across London for millions of people, cutting journeys by an average of 20 minutes, with some cut by more than an hour.

Visitors to London will be well-served with trains running on average every ten minutes between Cockfosters in the north and Heathrow Terminals 123 and 5 (no service on the Terminal 4 loop).

Standard off-peak fares will apply as well as daily fare capping on Oyster cards and contactless payment cards also applying. TfL is in partnership with VisitBritain for the promotion and distribution of the Visitor Oyster Card internationally on a ‘buy before you fly' basis, encouraging visitors to London to pre-purchase their travel tickets before they leave home. Using a Visitor Oyster card, customers only need one card to travel on all public transport across London, including Night Tube services.
