This Friday 18th November the Night Tube launches on the Northern Line, joining the Central, Jubilee and Victoria line in operating 24-hour services on Fridays and Saturdays. The Piccadilly Line will also operate a Night Tube from 16th December.
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 2,000 permanent jobs and provide £3.90 of benefit for each £1 spent on delivering it. You can read the full report here and a commentary on the Night Tube by London Reconnections 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”.
