Answer for Piccadilly Night Tube

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Night Tube service has been a great success; supporting London's night time economy and helping customers get around London through the night. Recently the Piccadilly line has experienced a few reliability issues because some train drivers have been absent due to sickness and non-availability. TfL has been working hard to resolve these issues, including recruiting additional drivers, and expects the line to return to a full service in the coming months.

The below figures demonstrate trains timetabled to operate versus trains which did operate on the Piccadilly line as measured at Leicester Square - used as a central London point. The figure for number of trains in service fluctuates as trains are swapped in and out of service throughout the night.
