Quieter times to travel

There is plenty of space on the network at quieter times.

The quieter times on the public transport network vary between weekdays and weekends.

  • During the week, it's generally quieter between 08:15 and 16:00 and after 17:30
  • On weekends, our quieter times are currently before noon and after 18:00

Quieter times may change as circumstances change. They may also vary across stations, lines and services. 

You can check how busy any station on the TfL network is, at any time of day online or using the TfL Go app.

If you are travelling into London via National Rail services, check their quieter times to travel.
