No more waiting for an Uber at 2am: the Night Tube is being rolled out across central London tonight.
Trains will run every ten minutes or so across the entire Jubilee and Victoria lines and parts of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines. Overnight services on the Metropolitan, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City lines are planned following modernisation works.
Journeys will cost the same as standard off-peak fares. Day Travelcards and daily capping on Oyster cards and contactless payment cards will run from the day of issue until 4.29am the following day.
Furthermore, eight new 24-hour bus services will be available on Friday and Saturday nights to help people get home more easily by public transport.
"The Night Tube is going to transform our city as for the first time tube passengers will be able to travel swiftly across the Capital throughout the night," says Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
"The safety and security of Londoners is vital, and it's why we've invested in new police officers on the Tube and it's why we're bringing in these brand new 24-hour bus services.
"The routes will go hand-in-hand with the Night Tube to help Londoners get to and from their front door throughout the night.
"It's another key step in helping everyone travel quickly and safely at night, and another boost to unlocking the full potential of our night time economy."
