24 Hour Travel From September 2015 As The Night Tube Arrives!
Further to our 24-hour Tubes news article of May 5th, Transport for London (TFL) have now issued the new night tube map, giving details of exactly where you can travel to and from, once the service has launched.
From September 12th, between Friday night and Sunday morning for the price of a standard off peak ticket, passengers will be able to travel on some of the Capitals underground network 24 hours a day, with trains running on average every 10 minutes.
There will be 5 lines operating this service and they are:
- 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
TFL claim the service will transform the capital's night time economy, boosting it by £360million and creating 2000 permanent jobs and best of all, this new service should cut journey times by an average of 20 minutes.
Plans are also afoot to expand the night time service to parts of the Metropolitan, Circle, District, and Hammersmith & City lines once modernisation programmes are complete. Additionally, services could operate on parts of the London Overground by 2017 and the Docklands Light Railway by 2021.
