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

Hundreds of drivers walked out on Christmas Eve and December 27, but there will be further action on the final day of 2022 and into the New Year. Strike action continues from today (December 31).

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 on December 31.
