Volterra’s work on the Night Tube has been in the news again this week with Transport for London’s release of the new tube map for the 24 hour service. As part of a project led by partner Ellie Evans, Volterra produced a report for TfL and London First in 2014 assessing the scheme’s impact on the night-time economy. Our findings indicated that the Night Tube would support 1,965 permanent jobs, alongside bringing numerous other benefits including increased safety of taxi passengers, improved accessibility to Heathrow, and contributing towards a more vibrant night-time economy that would in turn increase the attractiveness of London for visitors, residents and businesses. The service is scheduled to start on five London Underground lines on 12th September. Read more in a Huffington Post article that references our findings here.
