Night Tube begins in London after year-long delay [BBC News]





Date: 20/08/2016

The Night Tube has been launched in the London Underground - almost three years since the plan was first announced. Trains now run on the Victoria and Central lines on Fridays and Saturdays between 00:30 BST and 05:30. London Underground expects 50,000 people to use the Night Tube each weekend, rising to 200,000 once all five lines are open. The service had been intended to launch in September 2015 but was delayed due to strikes over pay.
