On Wednesday, March 15 London Underground workers that are part of the Aslef Union will be taking strike action. 

Strikes were announced back in February and will take place a day before national rail strike action. 

Transport for London (TfL) is urging travellers to be prepared and plan alternative routes to avoid travel chaos. 

With TfL encouraging travellers to make plans,  we thought we'd help out with some handy ways to avoid 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 drive then you can check the 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 service statuses 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.
