All-Night Tube Service Gets Launch Date


London’s long-awaited all-night Tube service will launch on two underground lines on 19 August, the new mayor has announced.A 24 hour service had been due to start last year but no agreement was reached with the unions, which led to it being delayed.
Transport for London (TfL) has now said all-night operations will begin at weekends on the Central and Victoria lines.
The night service will run on Fridays and Saturdays, from 12.30am to 5.30am, during which period there will be six trains an hour.
