As Tube services already run late into the night, Night Tube is not anticipated to increase demand for toilet facilities. Average journey times for Night Tube customers will reduce by 20 minutes with some journeys taking an hour less to complete. Nevertheless, I appreciate access to toilet facilities is an important issue for customers and TfL has published a map of all available public toilets on its network to help passengers find them. Seventy-six of these are at stations with Night Tube services running through them. This map is available at https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/track/tube.

In addition many London Boroughs, including those where the Northern line Night Tube service will operate, publish a list of all local toilet facilities.
