London’s night tube for the Underground is set to extend to the Jubilee line this weekend.
The night tube has run on the Victoria and Central lines on weekends since August, and will now run on the Jubilee line on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 October – running all night between Stanmore and Stratford.
This means it will call at the likes of The O2 and Wembley Stadium and Arena. The Jubilee line will run every 10 minutes.
“The launch on the Jubilee line will support thousands more workers like nurses, cleaners and people who work in our bars and restaurants — many of whom currently take two night buses to get home,” said London Mayor Sadiq Khan. “It will also serve some of our city’s key venues, with the O2, Wembley Stadium and Stratford on the route.”
Londoners are still awaiting news on when the service will extend to Northern and Piccadilly lines.
Many believe that the night tube will help to save London’s struggling night life as clubs and venues continue to close – the latest of them was controversially Fabric, which is set to appeal the council’s decision in November.
