Tube strike – Web and open data analytics

As expected, last week saw 4 days of high demand on our website and open data during the Tube strike and in the build up to it, with traffic at 1.67 x normal levels over Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th August.

The strike started on the evening of Wednesday 5th which was the busiest day, with 1,315,328 visits, though this was considerably lower than the busiest day of last month’s Tube strike, when we hit a record 2,058,618 visits.

With 1.3 Million visits, Wednesday 5th August was the 6th busiest day this calendar year, preceded by January and July strike days.

Proposed Tube strike – tools to keeping London moving

London Underground trade unions are planning a 24-hour strike on the Tube from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August. If the strike goes ahead, there will be no Tube service from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August until Friday 7 August. There will be no Tubes on Thursday 6 August. We are expecting a normal service to run on Friday.

DLR, London Overground, tram and TfL Rail services will be running as normal, though all of these services are expected to be much busier than usual and we have some tools available to help you get around during the disruption.
