The Night Tube service is set to return on the Jubilee line this weekend following a two year hiatus, Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed.

TfL said the through-the-night weekend services between Stanmore and Stratford would restart on Saturday May 21, joining the Central and Victoria lines, which resumed Night Tube services last November.

The Night Tube service is set to return on the Jubilee line on May 21

All five Night Tube lines were suspended at the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

TfL also said that dates for the restart of the Night Tube on the Northern and Piccadilly lines will be announced “later this summer”.

There are hopes that the return of the Jubilee Night Tube will help London’s night time economy recover, boosting cultural destinations such as the South Bank and Bermondsey.

It comes ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with the Deputy Mayor for Transport saying: "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 additional safe and reliable routes - in perfect time for a jam-packed summer of fantastic events in the capital."

TfL says it is running a normal service on the Victoria line each weekend and a regular service on the Central line, with at least two trains an hour, and anticipates running at least three trains an hour on the Jubilee line.

The transport body also says it is working hard to address resourcing issues on the Northern and Piccadilly lines, ahead of their return to Night Tube services this summer.

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.”
