We thought it might never happen, but the night tube is going to be an actual, real life thing in only a few months! The tube goes nocturnal on September 12 and last month we gave you a look at what the new tube map might look like, and now TfL has just released the real deal.
As you can see, they've traded in the usual white background for a nice dark blue one because, y'know, it's night time. It also looks pretty extensive, with five of the tube lines mostly operating their usual routes. Jubilee and Victoria line trains will run the entire line, Northern line trains will be running the usual route except for the Mill Hill East and Bank branches, the Central line is in action between Ealing Broadway and Hainault and Piccadilly line trains will run between Cockfosters and Heathrow Terminal 5. Fingers crossed one of those stops will actually get you vaguely near your house so you can finally rein in that expensive Uber habit. And you'll be pleased to hear that the night tube shouldn't put too much of a dent in your bank balance – TfL is charging standard off-peak fares and day travel cards will be valid until 4.30am the following morning.
