Night Tube should be supported by all-night buses on some routes in Croydon and Sutton

Buses on some routes in Croydon and Sutton should run through the night at weekends to compliment Night Tube services on the Northern Line, according to London Assembly member Steve O’Connell.

The Croydon and Sutton representative is aware of increasing demand for the number 80 service from Morden to run through the night, and wants the Mayor to look at other local bus routes as well.

This week the Mayor wrote to Mr O’Connell agreeing to include the number 80 service in his staff’s review of buses running alongside Night Tube services.

The Assembly Member now wants the Mayor to look at other local services as well.

London Assembly Member Steve O’Connell said: “Late night bus services from Night Tube stations provide a safe and convenient passage home for many of my constituents.

“The demand for these services is there and I’m glad the Mayor is looking into extending the hours on the number 80 route from Morden.

“However I believe the demand also exists on other routes and I will be urging the Mayor to look in detail at where else these services might be needed while his staff carry out their review.”
