Boris Johnson has announced plans to keep the capital moving in the event that this week’s threatened Tube strike goes ahead.
A strike by RMT members is set to start at 1859 on Tuesday (9th June) and run to 1858 on Thursday.
The Mayor has announced plans for extra buses, a free River shuttle service and the ability to use Oyster pay as you go on all Greater London National Rail services in the event that the strike proceeds.
Speaking this afternoon the Mayor said he was “determined to do as much as is humanly possible to ease the journeys of the millions of Londoners whose lives may be disrupted if strike action takes place.”
Passengers are being urged to check Transport for London’s website for up to date travel information and alternative travel options.
Those travelling by Tube on Tuesday evening are advised to finish their journeys by 1900hrs, with TfL officials warning that services “are likely to decline after this time.”
