Sadiq Khan continues to do bits for the capital. After months of delays and waiting, the long overdue Night Tube is finally opening this Friday night.
The Central and Victoria lines will open the service this coming Friday the 19th, with the Piccadilly, Jubilee and Northern lines following this Autumn.
The service is pretty active with trains running around every 10 or 20 minutes on Friday and Saturdays, between 12:30am and 6:00am. The majority of the Underground map is covered too, so whether you’re going to Mahiki or Birthdays, you’ll be covered.
The Central Line: Will run between Ealing Broadway and Hainault
The Victoria Line: The whole of the Victoria line will be running
The Northern Line: Will run on the entire Charing Cross branch but Mill Hill East station and the Bank branch
The Piccadilly Line: Will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow terminal 5
The Jubilee Line: Will also run in it’s entirety.
As if all this isn’t sick enough, the night tube fares will be off-peak, with day travel cards available to be used until 4:29am the day after you bought them.
Mayor Sadiq Khan is excited about the launch, saying;
“I’m really excited that at last we’re going to have a night tube. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a win-win situation. London is the theatre capital of the world, we have fantastic concerts, we have some of the world’s best restaurants and hotels, so it’s about connecting those dots. Four out of five tourists come to London because of our cultural offer, and you can’t have a situation where people are worried about how they get home.”
