Answer for Night Tube - Uxbridge and West Ruislip

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The case for Night Tube provision at the Rayners Lane/Uxbridge branch of the Piccadilly line and the West Ruislip branch of the Central line was considered in detail. TfL found that the level of potential demand was not enough at this time to justify an extension to the Night Tube, but will keep this under review.

Prior to the launch of Night Tube, TfL looked at existing night-time travel to ensure that bus services complemented the new service. Changes were made to a number of routes to ensure customers travelling in the early hours of the morning had easy options to get home.

Last year, a consultation took place on bus changes into the area. A new 24-hour 114 route which serves Mill Hill Broadway to Ruislip was introduced. This service provides a convenient link to Jubilee line Night Tube services at Queensbury station.
