For Train Operators and most station staff, early shifts start between 4.30am to 4.45am and late shifts finish around 1.30am. Train Operators at more than half of TfL's depots also work night shifts from around 11.00pm until 7.00am.

Station Supervisors, plus a range of control centre and management staff, are currently rostered in three shifts with start times of 7.00am, 3.00pm and 11.00pm. The shift that starts at 11.00pm is an overnight shift. These shift times can vary by around an hour each way to allow for local arrangements and preferences.

Generally the shifts for new Night Tube staff will be between 11.00pm until 7.00am on Friday and Saturday evenings.
