Friday and Saturday is every 15th minute with a train every 7-8 minute in the core.

But we actually have another 24/7 system.

The Øresund train runs between Østerport, København H, The airport and Malmö once every hour.

In the weekend is supplemented by another line with a train every hour, going from the airport, København H, Østerport and Helsingør.

Another weekend line with 1 train every hour is Østerport, København H and Roskilde, this one is almost 24/7 as there is a small gap on Sundays to Thursdays between 02:18 and 04:36 going towards Roskilde.

Finally the S-trains is having a huge succes with their weekend night trains that all 3 lines is now running every 30th minute.

That is a train every 15th minute in the core because line C to Frederikssund only starts from København H so it doesn't run through the central tunnel.

Normally there are 3 radial lines north of Copenhagen and 3 south and west of Copenhagen but the Circle line then serves the 3 stations on the Klampenborg line instead of line C.

The two others from north to south and west are Farum to Køge on line A and Hillerød to Høje Taastrup on Line B



When they started it was only once each hour.

It looks like your country has really effective maintenance teams to pull something like this off (i.e. 24 hour operations)

Right, I didn't understand your English.

Don't know about Philly, but to my knowledge, Cityrail has never really been properly 24h. It ends up being 24h in some places due to the excessively long travel times for example from Newcastle to Central (for example, you catch the 2:21am train to get into Sydney Central at 5:27am)...

I'm pretty sure Sydney had some form of 24h trains during the 1980s, before they introduced Nightride buses.

With the metro they run busses on the nights they have track repairs.


The Øresund train is only 1 pr hour so they could in theory run it on one single track and then repair the other track.


Track repairs on the S-train system is mostly done in weekends and during the summer vacation and public holidays so here busses will serve the line that is repaired or the S-train will run at a reduced schedule.

Don´t ask me why they don´t do it the other nights where the trains are not running.

I have added the 24/2 S-Tog service to the list http://mic-ro.com/metro/24h.html

It's good to hear about the Oerestad service.

Its good for the people living in Sweden that they can get an early departure from Copenhagen Airport.

Around 1/3 of the passengers are coming from Sweden and most of them is actually taking the train because the Øresund bridge is very expensive for car drivers and Parking also adds up.

Totally around 58% of the passengers use the Øresund/Intercity trains, Metro and busses to get to the airport, both day and night.

In London, the new service branded 'Night Tube' will start on 12 September 2015. Five tube lines will run on Friday and Saturday nights (Jubilee, Victoria, and most of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly). On the Northern Line, it's the Charing Cross branch.

I understand several MRT have problems with 24hr service or automation due to labor disputes. I just wish cities would fully automate their lines and stations, doing away with staff, and running services 24hrs.

I'm not sure if light rail systems are being counted here. If they are, Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro Green Line provides a 24 hour service.

The next December the London tube will be 24 in the weekends. Is there the chance that in the next years it will be 24/7 ?

About the metro of Paris the mayor Anne Hidalgo promised that it would become a 24 hours metro ( http://www.leparisien.fr/politique/m...15-4521371.php ). Is it a real possibility ?

Can somebody ( I think micro.... ) to correct 2 things in the http://mic-ro.com/metro/24h.html page ? The Thamesilink in London isn't 24/7, but 24/6 and the Southern has a part that is 24/7. Thank you.
