Night service returning on the Jubilee line – but not yet to the Piccadilly line

Night Tube services will be restarting on the Jubilee Line in May, after being suspended two years ago due to the pandemic.

From Saturday 21 May, the Jubilee line will run throughout the night and early hours on weekends.

Central and Victoria line services are already running night services, though they are being disrupted by ongoing strike action. A night Overground service, between Highbury & Islington and New Cross Gate, is also running at weekends.

The reopening of the Night Tube on the Jubilee Line still leaves some pre-pandemic night tube operations to reopen. TfL have said the Northern and Piccadilly lines will join the others “later this summer”.

In the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard, there were calls for TfL to fully reintroduce Night Tube services across the network in October. TfL said limited resources and planned engineering meant a more piecemeal approach was necessary.

A TfL spokesperson said:

“The full introduction of night tube services has not been possible so far as training still needs to take place to address resourcing issues on the Northern and Piccadilly lines. The return of these lines also has to be planned around complex vital operational and engineering closures.

“This includes the ongoing closure of the Bank branch of the Northern line to allow completion of the upgrade at Bank tube station, as well as other major closures and bespoke timetables.”
