On Tuesday, June 21 the London Underground will be shut down as around 10,000 workers take strike action

The tube strikes coincide with the first day of national rail strike action that will see the biggest rail disruption since the late 1980s. 

The strikes come after members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union (RMT) voted in favour of a dispute over pay, work safety, and job cuts. 

The strikes are expected to see major travel chaos hit the capital, with an extra strain on all other public transport. 

To save you some stress, we've got all the ways you can still travel whilst avoiding the strikes. 

How to get around London during Tube Strikes: 


The bus services and roads are expected to be a lot busier than normal, with commuters advised to allow more time for journeys. 

To plan your bus journey you can head to the Transport for London website, which has all bus routes and traffic status updates. 


If you'd rather driver then you can check road status by heading to the TfL website. 

You can also hire a car, but much like roads, car hires are expected to be very busy and may sell out. 

London Overground, TfL Rail, DLR, London Trams:

Timetable services to and from central London are likely to be disrupted.

Passengers are being advised to check for station closures before travelling if using services from stations served by the Tube.

You can check all services status via the TfL website. 

Walking and cycling:

Travellers are being advised to walk or cycle where possible, with much of Zone One walkable and never being far from a Santander Cycle hire point. 

You can check cyclic routes and road closures on the TfL website.
