Hello. Your voices are being heard. Look at the comments that I have copied and pasted that are from a petition about the same thing with about 200k signatures. You just need to be patient. The Mayor of London is working on the issue.

19 NOV 2021 — Dear Petitioner,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the petition submitted on the Change.org website about reinstating the Night Tube to help improve women’s safety.

I passionately believe that everyone has the right to feel safe travelling everywhere in our city. In recent years the shocking murders of Nicole Smallman, Bibaa Henry, Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa have rightly led to increased scrutiny of the actions being taken to make public spaces – including public transport - safer for women. I want London to be a place in which everyone feels safe moving around any part of the city at any time of the day or night, but we know that too often, women and girls travelling, working or going out at night, do not.

Following months of hard work and preparation, the Night Tube is set to return on the Central and Victoria lines on Saturday 27 November 2021. As we approach the busy festive period, the restoration of these lines will provide women, girls and all Londoners and visitors to our capital with a quick, convenient and safe means of travel.

The safety and security of all who use the network will always be my primary concern and Transport for London’s (TfL) top priority. Every day there are thousands of dedicated transport staff on the frontline of the network whose role is to support customers. There are also 500 TfL enforcement officers patrolling the entirety of the network in addition to an extensive CCTV network and over 2,500 police and police community support officers.

At the start of the COVID-19 crisis, due to a combination of staff shortages and plummeting demand, TfL was forced to suspend Night Tube services to help ensure it could keep London - and its heroic keyworkers - moving safely during the day.

Training for Tube drivers also had to be suspended and whilst sufficient drivers are now available on the Central and Victoria lines, training remains to be done on the other Night Tube lines (Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly). This training is now underway and all efforts will be made to return Night Tube services on remaining lines as soon as possible. The return of these lines must also be coordinated with vital upgrades to the Tube network and the necessary engineering closures and timetable changes.

While the Night Tube has a clear role to play in helping women feel safer in our city, it is just one of many measures I have introduced.

Extensive night bus services continue to run throughout the night with well over 100 routes operating, whilst over 600 organisations have now signed up to my Women’s Night Safety Charter, which aims to make London a place where all women and girls can feel safe at night.

Organisations that sign the Charter pledge to:
• Design public spaces to ensure they are, and feel, safer for women at night
• Train staff to ensure all women who report incidents are believed, and ensure all reports are recorded and responded to
• Nominate champions who promote women’s safety at night in that organisation.

TfL is a signatory of the Charter and is currently working in collaboration with women’s safety stakeholders to make public spaces safer.

Thank you for engaging with this important issue and highlighting the continued need to work together to improve safety for women and girls travelling across the city.

Yours sincerely,

Sadiq Khan
Mayor of London

14 OCT 2021 —

We've done it! Today it was announced by Sadiq Khan and Transport for London that the night tube on the Central and Victoria lines will reopen this winter, from Saturday 27th November. This will make a huge difference to women's safety when they travel home at night in London and demonstrates how petitions can drive positive change. I want to thank you all for your support as this progress wouldn't have been achieved without everyone who has signed the petition so far.

I also want to thank the Mayor for reaching out this morning to update me on this news and to explain how he hopes the remaining night tube lines will be able to reopen as soon as possible.

I believe this announcement is a great start to enhancing women’s safety when travelling home at night, but we need to ensure more lines reopen urgently to improve women’s safety across the capital. The campaign is not over yet. This petition was set up to improve the safety of ALL women travelling home across the whole of London, therefore please continue signing/sharing the petition to increase pressure to reinstate more lines as soon as possible! Let's see if we can reach 200,000 signatures!

If you live on the Northern, Jubilee, Piccadilly or Overground lines, in areas that were previously serviced by the night tube, and believe reinstating these services is essential to your safety travelling home at night, please email the Mayor at: mayor@london.gov.uk or tweet @transportforlondon asking for these lines to also be reinstated. Feel free to use this click to tweet link as a template: https://cct.ac/u35wv

Tweet: ‘@TfL @MayorofLondon @SadiqKhan thank you for reinstating Central & Victoria line night tube from Nov 27th. This is great progress, but improving the safety of ALL women is vital. Please extend the reopening to include women who rely on Northern/Jubilee/Piccadilly & Overground.’

Needed for normality. I'm at events and with less income over the last 18 months, I can't afford ubers everywhere and I'm too scared to walk.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I almost didn't sign this because of the focus on women. In fact, I refused to sign a similar petition for that very reason. Men are 2.5 times more likely to be murdered on the streets and several times more likely to be the victims of violence. Therefore we need services like the night tube to help keep men safe too. I support this petition because it appears to recognize that fact.

Thanks for adding your voice.
