Sadiq Khan has announced today that the Night Tube will be back open next month on the network’s two largest lines.
The 24-hour weekend London Underground service will resume on the Central and Victoria lines, after being suspended at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It comes after a wave of complaints in recent weeks that the lack of a Night Tube, and reduced numbers of Uber drivers in the capital, was making London less safe for women.
Services will run on the two lines for 24 hours on Friday and Saturday from 27 November.
Transport for London (TfL) said the Night Tube will return on the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines “as soon as practicable” and that.
“TfL is working hard to resolve resourcing issues on these lines and there are other considerations such as the upcoming closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line,” a statement said.
