Striking bus drivers caused rush hour delays and disruption in parts of London, but Transport for London say over a third of routes operated.
36 per cent of drivers turned up for work whilst the rest are striking in a dispute over a bonus for working during the Olympics.
Tfl appealed to drivers on later shifts to go to work, saying that any strikers may not get the bonus that is being offered by the bus companies.
There is a big gap between what is on the table, £8.3 million, and what the strikers want: £21 million.
The union, Unite, wants every bus driver to be paid a larger bonus, even if they don't drive routes affected by the Olympics, including anyone off sick or unavailabe to work.
Stratford Bus Station was eerily quiet this morning as bus workers took part in strikes across the capital.
The Unite union's regional secretary Peter Kavanagh has this morning described the bus strike as 'solid'.
Transport for London say 24 per cent of bus services are operating, but warn that many routes are disrupted.
Bus users are being advised by TFL to walk, cycle or use other transport services. Check the TFL website for more information http://www.tfl.gov.uk/buses.**
Metroline, Arriva the Shire, London General , Quality Line and Sullivans are the only bus companies running full services.
Travel information service INRIX is warning this morning that the bus strike may cause over-crowding on the Tube.
London bus drivers have walked off the job over a dispute about their pay during the Olympics.
Bus companies Arriva, Metroline and London General were granted a High Court injunction to prevent their workers going on strike, which means around a quarter of services will still operate.
But the Unite Union said its members at 17 other bus firms are sticking to their plan.
Mayor Boris Johnson has said those who strike will not be eligible for an Olympics bonus.
