Londoners swarm to bus stops as strike brings Tube to a standstill

Published on

Commuters in London are facing another Tube strike this morning, which has caused bus stops across the city to fill with passengers.

TFL strikes have been common in the city in recent months as workers have clashed about wages, pensions, and working conditions.

Due to a strike, nine lines of the London Subway are now not operating.

Just the Central and Northern lines are operational, and only on a limited scale.

Services on the London Overground and Docklands Light Railway have also been stopped.

Large lines can be seen forming at bus stops all around the city, as workers look for alternate transportation options.

There are now wait times at both Victoria and Waterloo stations.

It is official that tube services will resume at 8 a.m. on Friday morning after a 24-hour walkout by workers.

But the trouble is likely to last until the middle of the morning tomorrow.

TFL has warned travellers not to use the underground during the strike period, since there would be no or limited service.

Many people can work from home or stay away from the capital, but there are options for those who have to go there.

A walking Tube map provided by Transport for London (TfL) shows the average time needed to walk between stations.

TfL wrote next to the map, “Walking can be a quick and easy way to get around, particularly when travelling during the busiest times, which are 5.45am-8.15am and 4pm-5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

“This map shows how much time it takes to walk between stations on the same line.”

The results are quite useful, with most major London stations being less than 10 minutes apart.
