Proposed Tube Strike – Tools to Help You Plan Your Journey

**Planned industrial action by drivers on the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Piccadilly lines this week has now been suspended**

Some drivers on the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Piccadilly lines who are RMT union members are planning to strike from the evening of Tuesday 6 December. We will run as many services as possible depending on how many employees are available. However, we advise customers to plan for no Piccadilly line service and a significantly reduced service on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines until the end of the day on Wednesday 7 December. Customers are advised to complete their journeys on these lines by 19:00 on Tuesday 6 December.

Interchange stations and lines will be much busier than usual. Services on other Tube and rail lines, the bus network and river will run as normal but are expected to be busy as passengers seek alternative routes. Roads in west, central and east London will also be busier than usual. 

We have a variety of digital tools available to help you get around during the disruption.

Wifi Data Trial – Understanding London Underground Customer Journeys

TfL is conducting a four week trial, collecting depersonalised (pseudonimised) WiFi connection data in order to better understand how London Underground passengers move through stations and interchange between lines. The data will be collected at 54 Tube stations within Zones 1-4, and if the trial is successful the intention is that the data could be used to improve services, provide better travel information and help prioritise investment across the Tube network.

New Dataset – Bus Stop Localities

London has continuously grown over the centuries, with conurbations and smaller dwellings overlapping and joining together to form the greater London area that we know today. This means that the ways in which areas of London are defined can often be inconsistent or confusing to those not familiar with the city, and we aim to enrich our bus stop location data to offer a wider geographical context and to help people understand London’s localities at a glance.
