With London’s Night Tube launching on Friday 19 August, Transport for London (TfL) has updated its open Application Program Interface (API) to include Night Tube data.
The available data will allow customers, who use travel apps, to plan their Night Tube journeys ahead of its launch on Central and Victoria lines on the 19 August. As other Tube lines start running Night Tube services, the API will also be updated to include these services too.

The data, available free of charge at tfl.gov.uk/developers, will help developers create better products and services for customers. The latest service information will also be displayed on TfL’s in-station digital customer information boards and through the Journey Planner on the TfL website.
Phil Young, Head of Online at TfL, said: “London is a 24-hour city and millions of Londoners use apps powered by our open data to check the Tube, find a bus or see how the roads are running. By making information about the Night Tube services easy for customers and developers to access, we hope to make it easier for everyone to enjoy all that London has to offer and support the thousands of Londoners who have to travel to or from work during the night.”
