Transport in London over the Easter period

Wednesday 23 March 2016

Piccadilly line strike: Wednesday 23 March to Thursday 24 March

Drivers on the Piccadilly line who are trade union members are currently planning to strike from 9pm tonight, Wednesday 23 March, for 24 hours. If this goes ahead, there will be no Piccadilly line service tonight or all day tomorrow, Thursday 24 March. Although the strike begins at 9pm tonight, Piccadilly line services will be running until around 10.30pm. Please complete journeys on the Piccadilly line by this time, or travel earlier if possible.

Services on other Tube and Rail lines, the bus network, and river will run as normal but are expected to be busier than usual. Roads in west and central London are also expected to be busy.

If you are travelling between Heathrow airport and central London, please use Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express services to/from Paddington station.

Extra buses will be provided to help you get around. Buses do not accept cash. Please use contactless payment or Oyster, or a Bus & Tram Pass ticket. Contactless is the same fare as Oyster and you can find out more about it here.

The Piccadilly line is expected to run a Saturday service on Friday 25 March, as part of the Easter Bank Holiday arrangements. Details of Easter engineering work can be found at tfl.gov.uk/easter
