Volterra welcomes today’s launch of the Night Tube, which will see London Underground operating 24-hour services on Fridays and Saturdays. Night Tube services will launch on the Central and Victoria lines from tonight, with the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines to follow in the autumn.
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 and provide £3.90 of benefit for each £1 spent on delivering it. You can read the full report here.
The study was led by Volterra’s Partner Ellie Evans, who said: “In addition to its employment impacts, the Night Tube will bring numerous other benefits and contribute towards a more vibrant night-time economy that will increase the attractiveness of London for visitors, residents and businesses. This is great news for Londoners, and keeps London competitive on the global stage”.
