London Gets Eight New Night Buses to Compliment All-Night Tube

By Gary Cutlack on at

The night bus network, either the saviour of the city night out or the worst experience of a lifetime, is expanding within London. Eight new routes are coming online soon, offering to connect drunk people to their homes even if they're nowhere near one of the new 24-hour tube lines.

From this Friday, eight city routes will continue running all night, every 30 minutes. These are the:

34 (Barnet Church to Walthamstow Central)
123 (Ilford High Road to Wood Green)
145 (Leytonstone to Dagenham)
158 (Stratford to Chingford Mount)
296 (Ilford Broadway to Romford)
E1 (Greenford Broadway to Ealing Broadway)
W3 (Finsbury Park to Northumberland Park)
W7 (Finsbury Park to Muswell Hill Broadway).

Which should add a few more zeroes to house prices in the areas.

TfL's bus boss Mike Weston said: "These additional 24-hour bus services will enhance our London-wide, night time bus network and complement the Night Tube, making it easier for our customers to get home in the early hours of the morning. This will enable customers to make the most of London at night and will in turn help to boost the Capital's vibrant and growing night-time economy." [Timeout]
