24 Hours London Transport System will Begin by the End of 2015

Last year’s annoucement that Transport for London were about to start running weekend trains 24-hours on the Piccadilly, Victoria, Central, Jubilee and Northern lines by the end of 2015 has been followed up by the news that All-night services are to run at weekends on most Tube lines, the London Overground and Docklands Light Railway.

Night-time services will be extended to the Metropolitan, Circle, District, and Hammersmith & City lines by 2021. Services then will be extended on the London Overground in 2017 and the Docklands Light Railway by 2021.

Tube services at the moment in central London currently finish at around 00:30 GMT on Friday and Saturday nights.

The plans are part of a long term economic plan that could add £6.4bn to the London economy by 2030 and create half a million new jobs.

The aim is to recreate London as a 24-hour city at the centre of the world’s creative and commercial life and help to deal with the capital’s growing population.
