I'd be happy to list them down for you, if you wish:

(Note: routes in underline serve an airport, including JFK and La Guardia)

Manhattan (15): M2, M7, M14A, M14D, M15, M23, M42, M60-SBS, M79, M86-SBS, M96, M101, M102, M103, M104

Brooklyn (27): B1, B3, B6, B12, B14, B15, B17, B25, B26, B35, B36, B38, B41, B42, B43, B44, B46, B47, B48, B52, B54, B60, B61, B62, B63, B68, B82

Bronx (12): Bx9, Bx10, Bx12, Bx15, Bx19, Bx21, Bx22, Bx28, Bx35, Bx36, Bx40, Bx41

Queens (40): Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6, Q10, Q11, Q12, Q17, Q20A, Q24, Q25, Q27, Q28, Q33, Q35, Q36, Q39, Q43, Q44-SBS, Q46, Q53-LTD, Q54, Q55, Q56, Q58, Q59, Q60, Q64, Q65, Q66, Q70-LTD, Q83, Q85, Q100, Q101, Q110, Q111, Q114-LTD

Staten Island (8): S40, S46, S48, S51, S53, S62, S74, S78

Express Bus Service (1): X1 (Midtown Manhattan-Eltingville TC in Staten Island via Hylan Blvd)

While Q6 operates to JFK Airport, it does not serve the passenger terminals. Instead, it brings you to the Cargo Access area. And while most lines run the same alignment at all times, a few lines (like Q1, Q85, and Bx28) operate with slight adjustments to their daytime counterparts.

So yes, there are 103 24-hour bus lines in New York City. Whew, I must say if there are at least 2 buses on each line running on every route, you'd need roughly 250 or so coaches to meet riders' needs.

This service has 50 trunk lines (headway of 15 minutes) and 101 feeder lines (headway of 30 minutes) that operates from Midnight to 4 AM. Fare is R$ 3,80 (US$ 0,95) with three free transfers. NOTURNO lines operate during morning and evening too.
That's a ton of service! I can only wish I live close to one of those lines, especially on one with every 15 minute headways at night. And do those lines run daily, like literally round-the-clock? That would require so many buses, which would really work for me, a heavy commuter!

For some reason, however, some of the 1xx series buses (NJ <=> NYC) run way late into the night... Could we consider these as 24-hour services:

- 139 (NYC - Lakewood via Old Bridge, Marlboro Township)
- 159 (NYC - Fort Lee via Union City)
- 166 (NYC - Cresskill via North Bergen, Ridgefield)
- 190 (NYC - Paterson via Clifton, Passaic)

Łódź, Poland.

The night public transport system is organized in a way independent of the day public transport. It is based on a network of 7 bus lines (compare with 19 tram lines and about 50 bus lines during the day), numbered from N1 to N7:



Sorry for image quality, I didn't want to make it so big that you would have to scroll this post horizontally to read it. The full-size version is here (PDF format): http://www.mpk.lodz.pl/files/schemat...16_12_2015.pdf

The routes are so that they go not necessarily the shortest way, but they are designed so that a possibly big area can be serviced with a single bus line.

The night buses go every hour on the working days and every half an hour at nights between Friday and Saturday and between Saturday and Sunday, also between the preceeding day and a holiday. At each time they meet in a central point in the city centre and wait there a few minutes, so that passengers can change between them in order to get to any point of the city without long waiting for a change.

Apart from that, the 46 tram line, going to the town of Ozorków through Zgierz goes also during the night, although its route within the city is shorter than during the day, the trams reach only the Liberty Square (plac Wolności) and don't reach the Zdrowie end stop in the western part of Łódź:



(map by www.jakdojade.pl / www.emapa.pl)

Only the north-south leg of this line operates at night. During the night it goes every hour with a single two-hour break around 1:00/2:00.

The night 46 tram departures aren't unfortunately adjusted to the departures of night buses.

Yesterday also a new night tram line N9 to the town of Konstantynów Łódzki started. It operates only on weekends. It is financed from the participatory budget of Konstantynów Łódzki. It is synchronized with the night buses in Łódź and it stops next to their common stop. This tram goes every 1,5-2 hours.



(map by www.jakdojade.pl / www.emapa.pl)



(source: http://**********/img-pierwsze_n9_w_k...wie,37831.html / author: Igor)

The fares are the same as during the day. The tariff is based on time-limited tickets (20-minute, 40-minute, 60-minute) which allow to any number of changes between different vehicles. The time for change counts in, but you can go back from B in the direction of A after travelling from A to B if you are still within the time of your ticket. There are also single-ride tickets, but it's usually cheaper to use a time-limited ticket. The single-ride tickets are, however, the only ticket type sold by the drivers.

Quick question for those that have 24/7 bus lines:

How difficult can it be to manage such night routes, especially on weekends and holidays where you may have drunks on board buses? And how do you address such concerns where your challenges may range from rowdy behavior to someone vomiting on board?

Basically, the night lines aren't operated using the newest buses the city has, and rather with such ones that have a driver compartment separated from the passengers compartment with a wall. Cases when the bus gets vandalised happen, but they aren't so frequent and it happens with daytime buses too. And maybe not dangerous, but for sure disgusting situations happen also in daytime buses, if the bus is occupied by a homeless "liquer fan".

Controlling the tickets in the night buses is difficult. In my city there were cases when the public transport authority were organising special actions together with the municipal ward (a special kind of police, managed not by the state, but by the city, whose rights are somehow limited with respect to the normal police), then the ticket inspector is supported by an inspector of this ward - but it happens very rarely.

And, generally, the ticket inspectors tend to check tickets of "normal" passengers and not to check those of the passengers who seem to be dangerous, since it's much easier and safer... Unfortunately it is so.

Quite an interesting setup, with ten routes coming out from the City and the rest acting as feeders from train stations. And it's convenient that the fares are similar to its daypart counterparts. Perhaps that could be a model for other night services where a transit agency shares the wealth from downtown areas to the suburbs.

By the way, what's with a seemingly strange loop with H1, especially within the trolleybus loop line? It seems that the H1 serves the Lublanskaya Square hub just once from Sheremetyevo Airport, but not from the southern suburbs...

This problem has long been in discussions with the Department of Transport

Friday and Saturday nights only? I think a 4 million people city like Melbourne should have a 24/7 night bus service.
