All of TfL’s transport network, including the newly opened Elizabeth Line, will be running with no planned closures on the network.Eight buses with special commemorative wraps will be in service across the capital from today as Transport for London’s celebrations to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee get underway. The platinum buses will be in operation on selected routes passing by some of the iconic central London locations associated with the Royal family including Kensington Palace and Westminster Abbey, and Royal Parks such as Hyde Park and Green Park. Bus operators Arriva, RATP, Abellio, Go-Ahead, Metroline and Stagecoach have funded the special wraps. Customers using the Jubilee line, Elizabeth line or stations that have a Royal link in their name will see and hear special celebratory messages during the four day Platinum Jubilee weekend which takes place from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June. Station announcements and platform digital display boards will help Londoners and visitors get into the party spirit from Queen’s Road Overground station in Walthamstow, to Queensbury Underground and Royal Victoria DLR - and beyond.
Throughout the Jubilee weekend, all of the TfL’s public transport will be running with no planned closures, Night Tube services will be running on the Central, Jubilee & Victoria lines on Friday 3 June & Saturday 4 June and a special service will be in operation on the Elizabeth line on Sunday 5 June.
TfL services and central London roads may be busier than usual, particularly on the Saturday night and Sunday daytime at key interchanges, but customers will be able to get to where they need to go. Some short-term safety measures such as queuing, temporary station or road closures, or changes to the way customers enter or exit a station may be necessary.
Large-scale events during the weekend will involve road closures in central London, which are expected to cause travel disruption, delays and bus route changes. People should avoid driving in Central London and use routes that avoid the area if they are not attending the events.
Many popular central London locations, including the Royal Parks, are accessible by foot. TfL’s West End Walking Map covers the Westminster area where Jubilee events will be taking place. Cycling is also a fantastic option for those not attending events. However some roads will be closed, including the Cycleway 3 stretch on Constitution Hill which is closed until after the Jubilee. Those cycling may have to walk at some locations with their bike if it’s busy.
