Passengers have been warned to expect disruption to their journeys because of two 48-hour strikes by London Underground workers over the closure of Tube ticket offices. Today Tube bosses announced the following contingencies:
- LU to run as many services as possible, but there will be disruption and customers are urged to check before they travel at tfl.gov.uk
- Extra bus and river services to help Londoners get around, although networks are likely to be busy
- Licensed and trained TfL Ambassadors will help to keep Tube stations open and provide travel information and advice to customers
- LU reaffirms commitment that all Tube stations will remain staffed and controlled while services are running, with more staff visible and available to help customers in ticket halls and on platforms
