London Tube strike info 8-9 July 2015

As of now, the strike set to begin this afternoon and continue all day tomorrow is going on. There may also be disruptions for some part of Friday.

Check this post regularly for any updates. The regular Tube website has a banner headline saying that all Tube service is now shut down.

Here is the latest announcement from TfL…


Tube services have now stopped running as a result of the strike action by the ASLEF, RMT, Unite and TSSA unions. There will be no Tube service tomorrow, Thursday 9 July.

Staff on the bus network, the DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, Trams, river services, Emirates Air Line and Santander Cycles are not on strike; extra bus and river services will be in operation tomorrow.

National rail services are running largely as normal*. Public transport and roads will be much busier than usual, especially during peak hours. Please travel outside the peak times if you can.

Many locations in central London are easily accessible from mainline rail stations, and we have staff on hand to help people find their destinations. Please click the link for a copy of the central London bus map, which you can save to your mobile device.

Oyster pay as you go, Travelcards and contactless payment cards can, of course, all be used on National Rail services as normal.

For the most up-to-date information, including travel advice, please follow @TfLTravelAlerts or


London Trams are running; the Emirates cable car is also in service. FirstGreatWestern rail has a map with their services – this is a SEPARATE strike action, planned for 48 hours beginning Thursday and continuing thru start of service on Saturday am, 11 July. Lovely!

And here’s a link to TfL’s Twitter page, in case that’s easier to access.
