London Night Tube Map
A new map showing the stations set to be served by London’s Night Tube has been released and we for one can’t wait for its introduction later this year!
The 24-hour train service is due to start running from the 12th September this year and will stop at stations on the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines. While it’s not ever line, it should leave the vast majority of Londoners covered after a heavy night on the town.
Transport for London claim the service will transform our great capital’s night time economy, boosting it by £360million and creating 2000 permanent jobs. According to the TfL, late night revellers Joes can expect to cut their journey time by an average of 20minutes if they swap night buses for tubes.
To save us all having school night hangovers, the Night Tube will only run on Friday nights and during the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings on the following lines:
- 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 and service development, has hailed the service as “a historic step in our modernisation of the Underground.” Although the tube workers might not agree, we think so too. And think it will dramatically change the weekend culture for young London Joes. We just hope they bring the service to all lines!
