The SSR Division will have to wait until the signal upgrades are complete, and there are parts of the network where there is genuinely not enough demand for the Night Tube.

It's taken a good decade (and will take 2 to do the whole network) and billions of pounds to get the tube to a state where they can forgo two nights of maintenance each week. A third might be squeezed out, but I wouldn't count on it.

And then there's staffing - we had fairly protracted negotiations, with a couple of strikes, to get staff to agree to do it.

Please mind the gap between the train and the platform... even when drunk.

NYE works well, and they've been testing it, so tonight is unlikely to be a problem.

The main problems with doing it are going to be a few months down the line when the maintenance issues might begin to show - most likely on the not-yet-modernised Northern and Piccadilly lines (that, with the Jubilee line, won't start for a little while).

Next phase of London Night Tube to begin in October
26 Aug 2016



UK: Mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced on August 26 that weekend all-night service on London Underground’s Jubilee Line would begin on October 7.

The announcement comes a week after the launch of Night Tube services on the Central and Victoria lines. Transport for London recorded 50 000 passenger-journeys during the early hours of August 20, with six trains/h operating through central London between 00.30 and 05.30. The entire Victoria Line and the Central Line between Ealing Broadway, Loughton and Hainault are currently served

Cabbie drivers will lose their jobs.

Hardly.

This barely covers a fraction of the city. And the trains don't run very often. The cabbies aren't exactly suffering in the middle of the day when all of the tube is running, are they?

I think that NYC is very lucky to have 4 track sections on their subway. It makes maintenance possible despite 24h running. Other cities do not have that luxury, and to avoid breakdowns I would rather have 4-5 hours off each night so that maintenance is top-notch.
Prohibition is actually good for economy.

Forcing the underground to open overnight to boost economy is very Singaporean...

I'm not sure what Svartmetall is saying, but everything I've seen and heard is that Tokyo shuts down at midnight when the trains stop running. There are a few things open, but its a VERY tiny segment.

The bulk of New York's subways were built or designed before Prohibition.

And Philadelphia has recently added 24-hour service, having found a way to do so without impinging on maintenance.

Nobody is forcing anything. In Philadelphia, the impetus came from SEPTA, the local transit agency. And 24-hour subways have nothing at all to do with Singapore.

Basically what I said is all I know. They put that in the newspaper when they did it. Apparently it costs more money, since the workers have to work around the trains. Therefore, they might need more workers, I guess.
