London Underground has announced a new timetable on the Victoria line which will see more trains during both the morning and evening rush hours.

At the moment, they manage to have a train arrive every 100 seconds between 8:15am and 9:45am, and between 5pm to 6:30pm.

As of this morning, this band of high intensity trains will be expanded to run between 7:15am and 10.15am, and between 4:15pm to 7:15pm — doubling the time offered for the high-intensive service.

The new timetable will increase capacity during the rush hours by a further five percent – benefitting 275,000 customers every weekday.

The wider band for the high intensity service, one of the most intense trains services in the world will also make it easier for people who work more flexible hours, such as those who start early and leave early.

The new Victoria line timetable follows the introduction of increased services at peak times on the Northern and Jubilee lines last year.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    If only the Piccadilly Line could be so frequent…

    Is this actually new? On https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/working-timetables the Working Time Table 42 which mentions a 3-hour-long peak period is dated 16th September.

      Hmm, I think it actually is new; an old version of the website had WTT 41 listed as valid until 3rd November. The date on the timetable itself must be wrong; presumably the new timetable was delayed for some reason.

    Please do not adopt TfL speak and call us customers. We’re passengers.
