High five for Night Tube services
The Piccadilly line will become the fifth Night Tube service when it launches on Friday December 16.
The 24-hour weekend service will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5. It will help shift workers to get to and from work and make it even easier to access the capital's nightlife- from bars and restaurants in Kensington and the music venues of Hammersmith, to the cultural hotspots of the West End.
The services will also make travel to the airport quicker and easier for those catching early weekend flights. The timing of the launch will provide a boost for Christmas shoppers, too, and those looking to enjoy the festive night life.
The arrival of the Piccadilly line service follows the successful launches of the Central, Victoria and Jubilee lines, and the imminent arrival of services on the Northern line on Friday November 18. It also fulfills Mayor Sadiq Khan's pledge to have five lines running before the end of the year.
The Mayor said 'We've seen how enthusiastically Londoners have embraced the Night Tube, and I am delighted that we've exceeded expectations with more than one million journeys made already.
'The addition of the Piccadilly line will help even more thousands of Londoners every weekend, from those taking in the capital's cultural landmarks to the many workers who keep London open around the clock.'
Boost for customers
Mark Wild, London Underground's managing director, said: 'Launching the Night Tube on the Northern line next month and the Piccadilly line in December is an exciting development for London, which will enable even more Tube customers to make the most of everything this great city has to offer.'
