The London Mayor has announced today that the night Tube services on the Jubilee line will begin on October 7.

The all-night trains will help workers and visitors in Brent and those travelling to and from key attractions such as Wembley Stadium.
Mr Khan said: “I was determined to get the Night Tube up and running as soon as possible, and I’m delighted the Jubilee Line will now begin on October 7.
“The launch of the Jubilee line will support thousands more workers like nurses, cleaners, and people who work in our bars and restaurants - many of whom currently take two night buses to get home.
“It will also serve some of our city’s key venues.”
More than 100,000 people used the Night Tube when it launched on the Victoria and Central lines last weekend.
The lines have six trains per hour through central London between 12.30am and 5.30am.
Transport for London (TfL) predicts the service - which operates on Friday and Saturday nights - is cutting journey times by an average of 20 minutes, benefiting people who previously used buses to travel in the early hours of the morning.
The Northern and Piccadilly lines will follow later in the autumn.
