The mayor of London told LBC: “I will have an announcement in the next few weeks.
“We’re trying to get it back, TfL is working incredibly hard to get it back.”
The Mayor of London said the Night Tube had not yet reopened due to a “lack of revenue” and a lack of train operators.
“Train operators have been moved to other lines during the day to ensure that those lines can run through pandemics, pandemics and so forth,” he said.
“I look forward to making an announcement in the next few weeks because I understand the importance of night tubes; not only for women’s safety – a very important issue – but also for the night-time economy.”
He said it was still possible to get the tube by 1am and when they resume at 5.30am with night buses to fill the gap.
A petition urging the mayor of London to reinstate Night Tube to keep women safe in the wake of the murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa has attracted nearly 80,000 signatures. Thursday as of lunch time.
Petitioner Ella Watson said, “Women and girls in the UK and London are unsafe on the streets, especially at night.”
