London bus users, be warned – there are more strikes on the way as part of continuing union action.

Hundreds of drivers walked out on Christmas Eve, December 27 and New Year’s Eve, but the picket lines are still being populated beyond December and into January.

So, what is the situation with the London Underground when these strikes are happening?

Here’s all you need to know.

Are Tubes running today amid London bus strike?

Yes. Tube services in the capital are expected to run as close to normal as possible today (Tuesday, January 10).

However, it is worth noting that Tubes may be busier than usual, as bus commuters are forced to take alternative routes – and that delays unrelated to the action may also pop up.

You can get all the latest news on travel disruptions on the TfL website or its strike section.

Keep in mind that on Thursday, January 12 (the following bus strike date), there is also due to be a strike on the Elizabeth Line.

This will see the newest addition to London’s transport network halt services to the central part of its route, between Paddington and Abbey Wood, as well as offer reduced service elsewhere.

On this date, you can expect Elizabeth Line trains to be cancelled or changed at short notice, plus Tubes and DLR services around Central London to be busier than usual.

TfL says that good service is expect from 9am the following day, Friday, January 13 – so keep in mind for any early morning commutes.

When is the next bus strike?

The current list of bus strikes is scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, January 10
  • Thursday, January 12
  • Monday, January 16
  • Thursday, January 19
  • Wednesday, January 25
