London's transport commissioner, Mike Brown, said: "The night tube is going to be a massive benefit for our half a million and more customers who use the Tube after 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays".
The new service will only run on weekends and initially be available on just the popular Central and Victoria lines.
LONDON (AP) - London's new overnight subway service has begun, with plans to host 50,000 riders each weekend.
The night-time service was scheduled to start in September previous year but was delayed by a dispute with trade unions over staff conditions and pay.
It is expected weekend Night Tube services will gradually be introduced onto other underground lines across London.
The workers' dispute now resolved, the Night Tube will launch on two London Underground lines on Friday with three further lines to follow before the end of the year.
However, British pub chain Greene King said it doesn't now have any plans to alter its business hours or operations in London as a result of the new Tube service.
"It's fantastic news. You can feel the buzz, you can feel the vibe".

The Night Tube service will cut late-night journey times by an average of 20 minutes, and in some cases by more than an hour. People are really excited.
"We have waited too long for the promises made by the previous Mayor to become a reality", he said back in April of the Night Tube, "but ensuring it is up and running as quickly as possible once I am in City Hall will be invaluable in helping to save London's nightlife".

24-hour grocery stores: It wouldn't be a surprise to see more people picking up groceries in the middle of the night, which could benefit the popular grocery chain Tesco.
"Its introduction is a historic step in the modernization of the Underground and our continuing work to make life easier for Londoners and to support London's economic growth", Brown said.
"I'm really pleased & proud that today the #NightTube is here".
"What happened there is what I expect will happen here", he said.
Night Tube is being patrolled by 300 Transport Police officers in high-visability jackets riding the network like NY cops as a sign of safety and security.
