The Night Tube is Extending to the Jubilee Line on October 7th

By James O Malley on at

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has revealed when the next line will be joining London's Night Tube.

BBC London reports that the Mayor has confirmed October 7th as the switch-on date for the Jubilee Line offering overnight services on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Jubilee Line will join the Victoria and the Central Line, which began operating a night service a week ago, on the 19th August, and it will no doubt be good news for anyone attending events at the O2 arena, who would otherwise be approximately a billion miles from civilisation if they miss the last train.

Transport for London's eventual plan is to also extend the service to the Cockfosters to Heathrow branch of the Piccadilly and the Charing Cross branch of the Northern Line.

If the Jubilee launch is anything like the first two lines, TfL will no doubt run the line overnight (closed to passengers) in the weeks leading up to October 7th to test signalling and staff are prepared for the different to normal circumstances. In the run-up to launch, we may also see modifications to other transport infrastructure to better link up with the new service - prior to the first launch, TfL adjusted a number of night bus services and installed new taxi ranks outside stations, to ensure that everyone can get home okay.
