Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are currently four night bus routes which serve the Bow area:

       -Route 108 is a 24-hour service between Stratford and Lewisham with two buses per hour at night and serves Bromley-by-Bow tube station;

       -Route 25 is a 24-hour service between Oxford Circus and Ilford with 10 buses per hour on Friday and Saturday nights and 7 ½ buses per hour on Sunday to Thursday nights and serves stops along Bow Road;

       -Route N205 is a night service between Paddington and Leyton with three buses per hour on Friday and Saturday nights and two buses per hour on Sunday to Thursday nights and serves stops along Bow Road; and

       -Route N8 is a night service between Oxford Circus and Hainault which serves the Bow area with four buses per hour on Friday and Saturday nights and three buses per hour on Sunday to Thursday nights.

Due to existing high level of connectivity in the area at night, no changes to routes were proposed as a result of Night Tube. TfL will continue to monitor demand in the area.
