London Underground 24 hours

It has long been something lacking for residents, and a surprise for visitors used to 24-hour Metro services in other international cities, but the London Underground (LU) has until now gone to sleep by one in the morning.

This is all to change from 2015. 

Londoners and visitors to the capital will be able to take the Tube home at any hour of the night on Fridays and Saturdays (initially on the Piccadilly, Victoria, Central and Jubilee lines and key sections of the Northern line).  The new ‘Night Tube’ network has been made possible because significant parts of the LU network have been successfully modernised.

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and the Managing Director of London Underground, Mike Brown, last week set out their vision for the future of the Tube, including a new 24-hour ‘Night Tube’ service at weekends and more staff visible and available at stations to help customers buy the right ticket, plan their journeys and keep them safe and secure.  Out go ticket booths and in come “journey advisers” tasked with assisting at the ticket machines now at every station. www.tfl.gov.uk
