Please see Status Updates.

• Customers who need to travel are advised that remaining services and roads will be extremely busy if this strike action goes ahead. Plan ahead, check before you travel, and allow extra time to complete your journey.

Hi @SarahLS , Nick here from Citymapper :wave: thank you for the update! Got 3 questions regarding the strike:

  1. Can you confirm that these are the expected levels of services :point_down:

Sun 23: Finish early, by 19:00
Mon 24: good service
Tue 25: little to no service
Wed 26: no service
Thu 27: little to no service
Fri 28: no service
Sat 29: late start

  1. According to some news, ‘different grades and sections of the Tube (will be) taking action on different days’. Does this mean that on, for example Sunday,only part of the Tube network would be on strike?

  2. Any chance it might get called off?

Thank you!
