Following a petition to bring back the service to help keep women and girls safer, the Night Tube is set to partially reopen in November. Since the first Covid lockdown in March 2020,
Tube trains have not run at night. However, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced that the Night Tube will resume service on the Victoria and Central lines on November 27.
Following widespread outrage over the kidnapping of Sarah Everard by police officer Wayne Couzens as she walked home in London, more than 140,000 people signed a petition calling for the service to be reinstated. “I was so keen to be the first mayor in London’s history to start the Night Tube in 2016 and to restart it now, after the Covid pause, because I know how important this is to London’s thriving night-time economy, to London’s recovery, and to the confidence and safety of everyone traveling home at night, particularly women and girls,” said the London Mayor. “I am determined to make our city as safe as possible for all Londoners,” says
