London has a total of 103 night bus / 24 hour routes covering the good majority of London's 700 or so daytime services.

Major investment in London buses over the last few years has created, what I think at least, a service nothing short of world class brilliance.

Fares: All routes included in traverlcards and bus passes at no extra cost until 4.30am. Else 80p with an oyster smartcard (£1.50 without) for any journey.

The best night buses and trams service

What are the cities that have the best night service ( number and frequencies of lines ) of buses and trams / trolleys ?

Not sure by what criteria you are usng for the best night service: coverage, frequence, vehicles? Toronto has 24 overnight routes which cover major arterial roads throughout the city. The two routes replacing the subway lines (300 and 320) run at least every 15 minutes. The other routes run at least every 30 minutes. Route 301 and 306 are operated by streetcar while all the other routes are operated by bus.

Does regular transit service in Toronto really not start until 9:00 on Sundays?

The subways don't, other surface routes will begin around 6AM or so. The other overnight routes basically stop when the day service begins. The late start-up on Sundays has been a point of contention for riders needing to get to work on a Sunday morning. The TTC (Toronto Transit Commssion) uses the extra down time to perform maintenance work on the subway lines. Without an extra set of track to bypass the work sites, it is a necessity. (Pretty much the same reason/excuse for why the London Underground doesn't run 24 hours.)

I'd say London has one of the best night bus networks in the world. Many of the normal buses run 24hours and then there are extra night buses in the evening.

Most cities in the world have a bus map that shows their night bus services. In most of these cities, one map is sufficient. London has so many night buses that it has 82 such maps. You can find them all here:
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/gettingaro...?borough=night

From what I understand, the above is just for the city proper of London, and doesn't include all of the urban or metropolitan area.

From my experience, New York has good service, but it does have quite a few bus lines that don't run all night.

Still, can't be that 24-hour subway.

I'd vote for Berlin myself. It's got a huge 24 hour network with very good coverage of the city. It also runs frequently (between 10 minutes and 30 minutes depending on the service). The night service only operates between 0:30 and 4:00 because before or after those times normal services run. The U-bahn is replaced by buses that follow the exact U-bahn line between Monday morning and Friday morning (IE after midnight on those days) but the U-bahn runs all night on Saturday and Sunday mornings with a 15 minute interval.

Considering the city itself has only 3.4 million people I think it's a good network!

Here is the 24 hour network of Berlin in PDF diagram form.

Paris used to have a very bad network a few years ago but there was a lot of improvement: now we have an extensive network with a frequency between 10 and 30 min, depending on the lines. The long distance lines (up to 45 km from Paris center) are operated with a driver and a ticket inspector on all the way. There is a good loop service around the city center with a 15 min headway during the week and 10 min on the WE. And now the underground, 3 trams (T1, T2 and T3) and a few "day" bus lines in the outskirt are operating until 2.15 am on WE.

Barcelona has got 20 night bus lines operating every 20 minutes, all year round, every day.

And, at the weekends, metro and tramways also open from Saturday at 5am to Sunday at midnight, all lines.

Also, 20 more lines to other cities of the metropolitan region every hour, from 1 to 5am.

Stockholm has a really crappy Night service, after 1 AM when the subway close (3 AM weekends) you only have 3 lines for the inner city and some 20-30 for the entire county of 6000km^2.

Milan has almost no night service whatsoever. The subway stops before 1am until 6am, I think there is just a trolleybus circle line working all night, but it's quite useless without the other lines...plus it's not advisable to ride it at night!
