London’s underground plans to offer round-the-clock services on Fridays and Saturdays on its Jubilee, Victoria, Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines. Demand has increased and the number of passengers who travel by the metro on Friday and Saturday nights has gone up by 70% since 2000.
TFL will charge off-peak fares for travelling on the Night Tube.
Daytime travel cards will be valid on the day of issue (using the date printed on the card), and for journeys starting before 04:30 the next day. For instance, if you were to buy a day pass at 11:00 on Friday, you would be able to use it until 04:29 on the following Saturday. Daily capping on Oyster cards and contactless payment cards will apply.
Other Features and Safety
Step-free accessibility and staffing policy at the Night Tube stations will be the same as during the day service.
There will be enhanced police force during the night time. More than 100 officers will be deployed each weekend.
TFL is also conducting an assessment of noise issues in partnership with local authority before the service commences. We are carrying out a thorough assessment of noise issues alongside local authority Environmental Health Officers before the service. Once the Night Tube is functional, they will continue to work with the citizens to look into issues relating to noise and other inconveniences.
It is estimated that this move will support almost 2000 permanent jobs and boost London’s economy by 360 million pounds.
