24-Hour Services


The bad news for party animals and night workers alike is that most subways close for a few hours every night. Here's a complete list of the fortunate exceptions.

So why do they close? Since it is common anyways for metro lines to occasionally close for several consecutive days or weeks for upgrade or construction, why do they also close every night then? Whatever the reason is, some cities prove that round-the-clock service is absolutely possible.

Staying open at night means saving cost for staff locking and opening doors and guarding stations. It also means better service for passengers who can ride home from bars or parties easily without the need of watching the hour, reading timetables, or digging into the intricate details of night bus services.

To be listed here, train services need to operate nightly throughout the year, at least every 60 minutes. If there are night services only on special occasions like New Year, that doesn't count. And of course, bus services don't count.

London is planning to start 24h weekend service from September 2015 [BBC News, 24 Sep 2014].
