Transport for London would like to thank you for following the government’s advice not to travel unless your journey is absolutely necessary.
Ridership on services has fallen dramatically over the last few weeks. This is helping fight the spread of the virus, protecting the NHS and maintaining safe and reliable transport for health, logistics and other critical workers.
Only travel if your journey is absolutely essential. If you do travel, follow the expert advice on hand washing and other health measures. Transport for London are running reduced services and closing a number of stations, and also still need to undertake essential engineering work at weekends.
However if you need to travel, this information will help you get around London around the, 21st and 22nd March, and the following week.
Please continue to help Transport for London and their hardworking staff maintain this action in the weeks and months ahead.
Stay safe and only travel if it is absolutely essential.
Changes to services
From Friday 20 March, the Waterloo & City line will be closed and there will be no Night Tube or Night Overground services until further notice.
From Monday 23 March, Transport for London will also gradually reduce other services across the TfL network.
Their extensive night bus service will continue, in order to provide critical workers with a reliable night option as they continue to support the city throughout Covid-19.
These measures allow them to keep helping critical workers make their essential journeys, and keep the most used stations and services open and running.
