London bus users, be warned – there are more strikes on the way as part of continuing union action.

Hundreds of drivers walked out on over the Christmas period, and again in January, but the picket lines are still being populated, with more strikes planned for this month, and in February.

So, what is the situation with the London Underground when these strikes are happening?

Here’s all you need to know.

Are Tubes running today amid London bus strike?

Yes. Tube services in the capital are expected to run as close to normal as possible today (Thursday January 26).

However, it is worth noting that Tubes may be busier than usual, as bus commuters are forced to take alternative routes – and that delays unrelated to the action may also pop up.

According to the TfL website, the Elizabeth Line will be affected by industrial action until February 28.

It says that this means that during this period, Elizabeth line services could be changed or cancelled at short notice. 

You can get all the latest news on travel disruptions on the TfL website or its strike section.

When is the next bus strike?

The current list of bus strikes is scheduled for:

  • Thursday, January 26
  • Wednesday, February 1
  • Thursday. February 2
  • Friday, February 3

Routes affected by the bus strikes are run by Abellio and largely cover South and West London.

If you think you might be affected, you can see a full list of the affected buses on the TfL website.

Note that other routes from other bus companies are expected to run as normal.
