Nighttime network ZÜRICH [Friday + Saturday night]

Since 2002 Zurich's extensive S-Bahn Network runs all night at weekends and the nights before holidays. Some lines are being grouped and complemented by buses:

-->


The city's tram network becomes a bus network at night:

-->

All in all it works perfectly and very successfully. Each night train has security guards who guarantee for safety.

Other swiss cities also offer good quality nighttime services like Bern, Basel and Lausanne.

Sorry, I don't know more than you. Via Google I found another article in German, which says the current night gap in Frankfurt is 2 hours. And Cologne, Hanover and Stuttgart also have their LRTs running at night. I'll need to verify that.

And thank you, I have added Zurich.

Though no real metros, I could confirm that Cologne LRT, Hanover LRT and Stuttgart S-Bahn (not LRT) do have 24/2 operation. Nothing comparable in Munich though.

Great news for you, Micro. After many hard researchs ( I am not German like you.... ), I think that you can add the S Bahn Cologne ( the S13/S19 line runs 24/7 between Cologne Hbf and Cologne/Bonn Flaughafen ) and the S Bahn Frankfurt ( The S8/S9 line runs entirely 24/7 ) in the 24 hour services section of your fantastic site !!!

Thank you, Micro. I think that for a greater precision of this OUR () 24 hour services section, you could add also Newark ( Path ) and Wiesbaden and Mainz ( S8 commuter rail ). I should NOT add Offenbach am Main and Hanau because they are part of the Frankfurt metropolitan area and I should NOT add Camden for the Path because it is part of the Philadelphia metropolitan area and even if it is in another state, it has ONLY 74.000 inhabitants. I know that also Newark and Jersey City are part of the NY metropolitan area, but they are in another state and ABOVE ALL both have almost 300.000 inhabitants....
Are you agree ?

Not quite. Newark has only two PATH stations, so PATH cannot be considered Newark's network. Wiesbaden and Mainz are neither metro cities nor future metro cities in the definition of Metrobits. I know, analogies can seduce one to include this, and that, and finally everything. It's always difficult to draw a line, but I think the list is okay the way it is at the moment. Until the next real metro city comes up with a real 24-hour service... I'm looking forward to it.

Newark has only 1 Path station, not 2. Wiesbaden has 2 stations served 24/7 by the S8 line and Mainz has 3 stations served 24/7 by the S8 line. Now Frankfurt has only 4 stations served 24/7 by the same line. Cologne has only 5 stations served 24/7 by the S13/S19 line. And do you know how many stations in Philadelphia ( Patco ) have 24/7 service ? 3....

P.S. I think that it should be specified that the Green Line of Minneapolis is a Light Rail ( like Sydney ).

I know that some metro/suburban rails were 24/7 in past years : Philadelphia metro ( from 1907 to 1991 ), Cleveland metro ( http://www.jtbell.net/transit/images...e-19720416.pdf ) , Miami metrorail ( for a brief period between 2003 and 2004 ) and Sydney suburban trains. Also Chicago had other lines in service 24/7 beyond the Red and Blue lines. In fact the owl service was cut in 1998 on the Green, Purple and in the Blue ( Douglas section ) lines.
Is it possible, on the fantastic metrobits site, to organize some petition to ask a 24/7 service in some cities ( I think above all London, Paris, Berlin, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, other Chicago lines, Sydney etc ) ?
Thank you for the possible reply.

Technically for Minnesota, both Blue and Green lines run 24/7.

But Blue line only runs the airport section 24/7.

Berlin S-Bahn is 24/2. I think also some tube lines in London now are 24/2.

Very strange news:https://financialtribune.com/article...18/247-subways

Only 3 stations in service 24/7 (2 stations of the 8 line and 1 station of the 1 line....) and ABOVE ALL a ridicolous frequency of 80 minutes all day!!!!
From IKIA Airport (city direction)
06:40
08:00
09:20
10:40
12:00
13:20
14:40
16:00
17:20
18:40
20:00
21:20
22:40
00:00
01:20
02:40
04:00
05:20

Dear Micro, don't add this to our 24/7 section (the frequency must be 60 minutes at most)

The Blue line has also another section in service 24/7 : the NORTHBOUND trips between Cedar-Riverside and Target Field Station.
