Please provide me with estimates on the number of passengers you expect to use the night tube? Furthermore please provide details of what modal shift you are expecting and what effect that will have on the number of people using other modes of transport to travel around London during the night.

TfL expects the initial customer demand for Night Tube to be 9.7m journeys per year. 4.67m of those are expected to transfer from buses and 0.29m from taxi/private hire vehicles. It is anticipated that Night Tube will generate an additional 4.74m journeys.

The proposed changes for the night bus network will add 17 new weekend night bus routes connecting in to the Night Tube to enhance travel opportunities across even more of London.

TfL expects some people using the Night Tube to want to continue their journey by taxi and is reviewing taxi rank arrangements at Night Tube stations. Locations for new night time ranks are being identified, where there may be an increased demand for taxi services.
