Jubilee Night Tube to help boost London's night-time economic recovery

Night Tube services will return on the Jubilee line in May and will help London’s night-time economic recovery from the pandemic.

The night services will also return to the Northern and Piccadilly lines in the summer after they were suspended in March 2020.

This move will help businesses along the lines as the night-time economy returns to normal and looks to recover from the pandemic.

It will also provide a safe and quick mode of transport for those looking to travel around the capital for work and leisure at night.

Before the pandemic a total of 1.6m people were regularly working at night in London, this equates to a third of the city’s workforce.

Nick Dent, London Underground’s Director of Customer Operations commented on the benefits of the return of Night services on the Jubilee line.

Mr Dent 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.

“[This will] 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.”

Resourcing issues on the Northern and Piccadilly lines has meant the full introduction of the Night Tube has not been possible.

The reopening of these lines has been carefully planned around complex operational and engineering work that is set to take place.
