London opened two of the lines on its underground railway through the night at the weekends for the first time. Transport for London (TfL) recorded around 50,000 customers using the Underground on its opening night of services in August on the Central and Victoria lines. The night service will be rolled out on the Jubilee, Piccadilly and Northern lines in the Autumn. There are also plans to expand the service to parts of the Metropolitan, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City lines–after modernisation–and on parts of the London Overground in 2017 and the Docklands Light Railway by 2021. Eight new bus routes will now run around the clock to complement the Underground’s night services. The mayor is investing £3.4 million towards policing for the Night Tube. About 100 British Transport Police officers patrolled the network on the launch of the service and only one arrest was made. The mayor claimed as many officers will be out during the night as would be seen during the day.
