Tube, rail and bus strikes on Friday and national rail strikes on Thursday and Saturday

Tube, rail and bus strikes will affect the majority of TfL’s network on Friday 19 August. Customers are advised to avoid travelling on the Tube and only travel on the rest of the TfL network if essential 
Strike action by Unite is taking place on some London bus services in west and southwest London on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August. Customers are encouraged to avoid making journeys on affected routes The RMT is also striking on national rail services on Thursday 18 and Saturday 20 August, which will impact some London Underground, London Overground and Elizabeth line services. Customers using national rail services are advised to avoid travel unless absolutely necessary 

Disruption from strike action will continue into the following morning, so customers should check before they travel 

Transport for London (TfL) is urging customers to avoid travelling on the Tube and only travel if essential on the rest of the network on Friday 19 August and until 08:00 on Saturday 20 August. This is due to planned industrial action by the RMT on London Underground and London Overground on 19 August, as well as by Unite on some London buses in west and southwest London on 19 and 20 August.  RMT strike action on national rail services will also impact services on London Underground, London Overground and the Elizabeth line from 18-21 August. Customers are advised to check before they travel and leave more time for their journeys. Unite is undertaking strike action on some London bus services on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August, which will impact routes through west and southwest London and parts of Surrey. In total, 57 routes will not be operating throughout the action and there will be no Night Bus service on affected routes on Friday 19 August and Saturday 20 August, however the remaining 489 bus routes across London will continue to run as scheduled. A full list of affected routes is available below and on TfL's webpage. Customers are encouraged to avoid making journeys on affected services until 08:00 on Sunday 21 August, but reminded that the majority of routes will run as normal. Walking or cycling may be quicker for some journeys and planning tools are available to plan walking journeys. Santander Cycles will be available, with teams ensuring that bikes are distributed at key locations according to demand. Rental e-scooters are also available to hire in some London boroughs. Additional river services will run on Friday 19 August to help those who need to travel. Customers should check the timetable and allow extra time for their journeys as services may be busier than usual. 


For the latest information on how TfL services are operating, please use TfL's real-time travel tools, including status updates, Journey Planner and TfL Go. Travel advice for the strike action is available at tfl.gov.uk/strikes. 

Andy Lord, TfL's Chief Operating Officer, said: "I would like to apologise to our customers for the strike action being carried out by RMT and Unite, which will have a significant impact on the city’s transport network. I understand how frustrating these strikes are and I’d like to remind the RMT and Unite that it's not too late to work with us, Arriva Rail London and RATP to find a resolution and avoid the huge disruption this action will cause to people’s journeys and to the economy. “Customers should check before they travel from 18-21 August, as strike action is impacting different modes of transport each day. For 19 August, we are urging our customers to avoid travelling on the Tube and only travel if essential on the rest of the network. We expect little to no service on the Tube until 08:00 on Saturday 20 August and alternative travel modes are likely to be busy. Please consider walking and cycling if you need to travel.” This disruptive action on London Underground comes as part of a dispute with the RMT over pensions, jobs and conditions. This is despite the fact no proposals have been tabled on pensions or terms and conditions, and nobody has or will lose their jobs because of the proposals TfL has set out. The RMT is seeking assurances from TfL that no organisation could meaningfully provide. Unite trade union members at bus operator RATP are striking over a separate issue relating to pay. TfL has urged both parties to work together to agree on a fair pay settlement and avoid the need for industrial action.  

Strike action impacts August 18-21
