Bus users in North London have been warned to expect “severe disruption” on Thursday due to a planned strike by members of the Unite union.
Staff employed by Arriva London North are taking industrial action as part of a pay dispute with their employer.
Although London’s bus services are regulated by Transport for London, drivers and other staff are employed by the private bus companies who operate each route.
The planned action will take place between 03:00 on Thursday 29 November until 02:59 on Friday 30 November and will affect routes in north London as well as some servicing central London including the 29, 38, 73, 149 and 243.
TfL has warned passengers face “severe disruption” and said some routes may not operate during the 24-hour strike period.
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director of Surface Transport, said: “We are sorry that some bus passengers will have their journeys disrupted tomorrow.
“We are working hard behind the scenes to provide as much detailed information and assistance to passengers as possible to minimise this disruption. We would strongly urge Unite and Arriva London North to continue with discussions to resolve this dispute and prevent further disruption to bus passengers.”
