Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground is committed to ensuring there will be staff at all stations which are operating during Night Tube, and will ensure that they have the right number of station staff through the night to operate safely and meet the needs of customers.

The network will be staffed with the fewest number of staff between 2.00am and 4.00am where 475 members of station staff will be on duty. This figure takes into account meal break cover and compares favourably with current staffing numbers. There are currently 380 station staff on duty at midnight on Friday nights at stations that will be served by the Night Tube in the future.
