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.”
