London Underground (LU) today launched its official Night Tube map ahead of introducing its first all night Tube services in less than three months’ time.

The new map has been designed to show customers clearly which Tube lines and stations will operate 24-hour services from the early hours of 12 September 2015, transforming night time journeys across London for millions of people.

The Night Tube will mean Londoners and visitors to the Capital can travel on the following lines on Friday nights and the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings:

  • Central line: trains will run between Ealing Broadway and Hainault;
  • Jubilee line: trains will run on the entire line;
  • Northern line: trains will run on the entire line except on the Mill Hill East and Bank branches;
  • Piccadilly line: trains will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5;
  • Victoria line: trains will run on the entire line.

The Night Tube will transform night time journeys across London for millions of people, cutting journeys by an average of 20 minutes, with some cut by more than an hour.

London’s night-time economy will be opened up to a host of new opportunities, with the Night Tube supporting around 2,000 permanent jobs and boosting the economy by £360 million.

As the most visited city in the world, London will be joining just a handful of other top world cities, including New York and Berlin, which also provide metro services through the night. The new services will help to maintain London’s status as a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit.

Gareth Powell, London Underground’s Director of Strategy & Service Development, said:

“The introduction of the Night Tube is a historic step in our modernisation of the Underground.  The Night Tube map shows our customers exactly when and where they can use this landmark service, which will make their late night journeys quicker and easier than ever before. As well making life easier for people, the Night Tube will also boost London’s night-time economy – supporting thousands of jobs and stimulating hundreds of millions of pounds in economic growth.”
