Night Tube services will return to the Jubilee line in May, with the Northern and Piccadilly lines resuming later in the summer, after all Night Tube services were suspended in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
Services on the Jubilee line will run throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays from the evening of Saturday 21 May, joining the Central and Victoria lines, which resumed Night Tube services in November 2021.
London had 1.6million people regularly working at night before the pandemic – a third of the city’s workforce.
Nick Dent, London Underground’s Director of Customer Operations, said: “The return of Night Tube on the Jubilee line, along with the Piccadilly and Northern lines later in the summer, will be a boost to the night-time economy and help our customers travel around London overnight at weekends.
“London is a global destination and we are proud to be doing our part to help people to safely and enjoyably benefit from the best of its world-leading night-time economy.”
The full introduction of Night Tube services has not been possible so far as training still needs to take place to address resourcing issues on the Northern and Piccadilly lines.
The return of these lines also has to be planned around complex vital operational and engineering closures. This includes the ongoing closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line to allow completion of the upgrade at Bank Tube station, as well as other major closures and bespoke timetables. Full Night Tube services will be re-introduced in the coming months.
