The next line to benefit from the Night Tube will be the Jubilee, the Mayor of London announced today.
Sadiq Khan said that the all-night service will be introduced on Friday, October 7.
It will see Canning Town and West Ham join Stratford in having trains run through it on Friday and Saturday nights.
The lines have six trains per hour through central London between 12.30am and 5.30am.
Mr Khan said: “I was determined to get the Night Tube up and running as soon as possible, and I’m delighted the Jubilee Line will now begin on October 7.
“There was huge excitement at the launch of the Central and Victoria Lines last Friday, and it’s already having a beneficial impact on our night time economy.
“The launch of the Jubilee line will support thousands more workers like nurses, cleaners, and people who work in our bars and restaurants - many of whom currently take two night buses to get home.”
The Northern and Piccadilly lines will follow later in the autumn.
