Transport for London
Following recent travel advice from the Government, we need your help to keep public transport safe for Londoners who have no alternative way to travel during this period.
If your journey is not essential, we ask that you continue to avoid public transport to free up the limited space available.
The national requirement to maintain 2 metres social distancing means there is only 13-15 per cent of normal capacity even as we work towards progressively increasing service levels to pre-crisis levels, beginning with increases next week.
So please, if you can work from home then continue to do so and consider walking and cycling if you can.
If you do use public transport then please help if you can by travelling outside the busiest times of between 05:45-08:15 and 16:00-17.30. We are asking employers to be flexible about working hours if at all possible.
When using our services please use a face covering, carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before and after you travel. Do not travel if you show any signs of the virus.
We continue to put measures in place to help enable social distancing. This includes new signage and platform stickers and operating stations differently through restricting station entry if necessary and one-way and queuing systems. Our staff are on hand to help, so please do as they ask.
Please help by considering starting or ending your journey using quieter stations or getting off earlier and walking or cycling using the Santander cycles to your destination from there.
We are changing our streets to allocate more space to walk and cycle with less traffic. To find out more, please see our Streetspace plans.
We are also updating our digital tools such as journey planner, our Facebook TravelBot and the real-time data we provide to apps.
Everyone is doing their best in these difficult times.
Thank you for your help.
