TFL | Tube Strikes Update, 24.08

Dear Customer,

Certain Tube trade unions have announced strike action for next week. If the strikes go ahead, Tube services will be severely affected between Tuesday 25 and Friday 28 August.

The best way to find out what Tube services are running during the strikes will be our real-time travel tools at tfl.gov.uk and by following @TfLTravelAlerts@TfLTrafficNews and @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter. You can also visit tfl.gov.uk/tube-strike

Staff on the bus network, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, tram, Emirates Air Line, Santander Cycles and River services will not be on strike. These services will operate as normal, but they will be much busier than usual and customers are strongly advised, if possible, to travel outside the morning and evening peaks.

Tuesday 25 August
Tube services will run as normal for most of the day but will stop running at around 18:30, so please complete your Tube journey by this time and travel earlier if possible. Tube services are expected to be exceptionally busy between 16:30 and 18:30.

Wednesday 26 August
We will run as many Tube services as possible according to how many staff sign onto their shifts. However, most Tube services are unlikely to run at all and those that do run may only serve some stations, and may only run for part of the day. Please check our website and Twitter accounts for updates on what is running. Extra bus and river services will run, but all other public transport services and roads will be much busier than usual. Please travel outside the morning and evening peaks if you can.

Buses do not accept cash. Please use contactless payment or Oyster. Contactless is the same fare as Oyster.
