Transport for London (TfL) is returning Night Tube services on the Jubilee line on Saturday 21 May, in a further boost for the capital’s recovery from the pandemic, with Northern and Piccadilly lines returning later this summer. This comes after all Night Tube services were suspended in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
Services on the Jubilee line will run throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays from the evening of Saturday 21 May, joining the Central and Victoria lines, which resumed Night Tube services in November 2021.
Public transport is key to the capital’s recovery from the pandemic, and millions of Londoners are now regularly using public transport, showing continued confidence that services are safe, clean, and reliable. Ridership on the Tube network has reached as high as 80 per cent of pre-pandemic levels at weekends, while ridership on buses is regularly at 75%.
Restoring night services on the Jubilee line will provide further travel options for Londoners and visitors looking to make the most of all the capital has to offer in the evenings, and those who need to travel to or from work at night. The return of Jubilee line Night Tube services comes in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Seb Dance, the Deputy Mayor for Transport said: “The return of the Jubilee line Night Tube marks another important moment in London’s recovery from the pandemic. From next weekend Night Tube services on the Jubilee line will join those already back open and running on the Victoria and Central line. Combined with the return of the Piccadilly and Northern line later this summer, this will make a huge difference to Londoners travelling around our city at night, offering them an additional safe and reliable route ─ in perfect time for a jam-packed summer of fantastic events in the capital.”
Nick Dent, TfL’s Director of Customer Operations said: “It’s great to see the Jubilee line Night Tube returning, along with the Piccadilly and Northern line later in the summer, ready for an exciting array of summer events highlighting all that London has to offer. This is another milestone in the capital’s recovery, showing London is once again open for business”.
