UPDATE – Strikes planned on Arriva London North bus services in June have been suspended.

Strike action will affect buses in north London and parts of central and east London on four days later this month, with little or no service expected on affected routes.

In total, around a tenth of London’s bus routes are affected by the strike.

If the strike, called by the Unite union, goes ahead, little or no service is expected on the affected routes, and other local bus, Tube and rail services in this part of London will be busier than usual if the action goes ahead.

Bus drivers at some Arriva London North garages plan to strike on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st June, as well as on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th June. This is expected to affect up to 46 routes, mostly through north London and also parts of central and east London.

Little or no service is expected on affected bus routes from 5am, or the time of the first bus, on Tuesday 20th June, all day on Wednesday 21st June and through to 6am on Thursday 22 June, when the normal service is expected to resume. The same service pattern will apply the following week.

Louise Cheeseman, TfL’s Director of Bus, said: “If this action goes ahead there will still be options for people to travel in north London and parts of central and east London, but other routes may be busier than normal. We’re encouraging everyone who might be affected to plan ahead, check before they travel and leave more time for their journeys. Our website is a really easy way to check your travel, whether that’s days in advance or whilst on the move.

“We encourage both parties to find a solution to this dispute to avoid disruption to Londoners.”

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
