I am writing to share our provisional plans for what we will run on each Tube line during the planned strike action by the RMT union.
If the Tube strike goes ahead, Tube services will be affected from:
• Around 21:00 on Monday 28 April and throughout the whole of Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 April
• Around 21:00 on Monday 5 May and throughout the whole of Tuesday 6, Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 May
We will run as many trains as we can but there will be disruption, with some stations closed. Last trains will be earlier than usual on strike days.
The DLR, London Overground, and other rail services will operate normally but will busy. We will enhance our bus and river services on key routes. The ’Nearby’ feature on our new website gives you a map of all our services in your vicinity, such as bus stops and river piers as well as live information on departure times. Cycling or walking may be an option for shorter journeys.

A reduced Heathrow Express service will run on Tuesday 29 April and Wednesday 30 April due to separate strike action by the RMT.
Future of the Tube
The improvements we are proposing will mean more staff than ever visible and available in all areas of stations to help customers buy tickets and plan journeys, just like during the London 2012 Games.

We will work hard to minimise the disruption this action by the RMT will cause you.
