Strikes

Bus strikes

There are strikes on Abellio and Metroline bus services. On strike days, we will aim to run as many services as possible.

  • There are days when strikes affect both Abellio and Metroline services, and days when strikes affect Abellio only or Metroline only
  • Routes affected by the Abellio strike action are mostly in west and south London
  • Routes affected by the Metroline strike action are mostly in west, northwest and north London
  • Other bus services are not affected by these strikes

Strike dates 

Metroline strikes planned for 1-3 December have been suspended.

There are strikes on these dates:

  • Thursday 1 to Saturday 3 December (Abellio only)
  • Thursday 8 December (Abellio only)
  • Friday 9 December (Abellio and Metroline)
  • Saturday 10 December (Metroline only)
  • Thursday 15 December (Abellio only)
  • Friday 16 December (Abellio and Metroline)
  • Saturday 17 December (Metroline only)

Routes affected for each operator are listed below. Other services not affected by strikes will be busier than normal.

On the days after strikes, a good service will be running by approximately 06:00.

Plan ahead and check your travel.
