The Jubilee line will start running Night Tube services this weekend


Night Tube services on the Jubilee line will start this weekend, extending nights out for a whole host of Londoners.

Trains will operate around every 10 minutes throughout Friday and Saturday nights, helping people travel to and from attractions such as The O2, Wembley Stadium and London Stadium in Stratford.

The all-night service was launched on the Victoria and Central lines on August 19.

The Northern and Piccadilly lines will follow in the autumn.

Around 200,000 passengers are expected to use the Night Tube when all five lines are operational.

Transport for London predicts the service will cut journey times by an average of 20 minutes, benefiting people who previously used buses to travel in the early hours of the morning.

When the opening date of Jubilee line Night Tube service was announced, London mayor Sadiq Khan said: "The launch of 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.

"It will also serve some of our city's key venues."

Rebecca Kane Burton, vice-president of The O2, said: "The Night Tube is a game changer for venues like The O2 and thousands more across the capital.

"Over 60% of our fans already use the Jubilee line to reach us.

"That will grow, the experience will improve and it will enhance options for the teams who work here too."
