Tube services operating on nine lines despite strike
London Underground (LU) still operated the train services on nine lines despite the pointless strike called by the leadership of the RMT union. As planned, services did not run yesterday on the Waterloo and City or Circle lines, the stations on which are served by other lines.
At the same time, the highest number of buses ever operated in London - 7,961, which is 266 more than usual - are, along with other TfL services, helping to ensure that London remains working and open for business.
Many thousands of staff and volunteer Travel Ambassadors drawn from TfL’s support functions are out in force working hard to help customers and road users make their journeys.
The strikes have been called by the leadership of the RMT union over plans to modernise the Tube.
Under these plans, at the busiest stations there will be nearly a third more staff visible and available to provide, on a permanent basis, the face-to-face customer service offered during the London 2012 Games.
Visitors to London and people with disabilities will be better looked after than ever before.
The modernisation will see savings of £50 million a year which will be reinvested in more frequent and reliable train services and will help keep fares down.
