Transport for London has announced that the night service will launch on the Northern line next month
Northern line services will run from High Barnet and Edgware, via the Charing Cross branch, to Morden, from Friday 18 November. This will help even more Londoners travel to and from work, as well as helping those accessing the capital’s iconic nightlife venues; from the vibrant music scene in Camden to bars and restaurants in Clapham via world-class culture in the West End.
The Night Tube is already cutting journeys by an average of 20 minutes, with some cut by more than an hour. The services are playing a vital role in opening up London’s night-time economy, boosting it by £77m a year and supporting around 2,000 permanent jobs. This positive impact has already seen increased footfall on Oxford Street and the West End.
Mark Wild, London Underground’s Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted that we are now able to bring the Night Tube to our Jubilee line customers, following the successful launch of the Central and Victoria line services this summer. Nearly three-quarters of a million journeys have already been made on the Night Tube, surpassing our projections, and numbers continue to rise. Introducing the Night Tube on the Northern line next month will be another step forward for London, opening up new opportunities for Tube customers to enjoy even more of what London has to offer.”
