A number of bus routes in west London will be hit by several strikes between now and Christmas in a dispute with the Unite union.

Some bus drivers on eight bus routes plan to strike on:

  • Friday 10th November
  • Monday 13th November
  • Friday 1st December
  • Monday 4th December
  • Friday 22nd December
  • Saturday 23rd December

If the action goes ahead, little or no service is expected on the affected routes between approximately 5am on strike days and 6am the day after each strike. Other local bus, Tube and rail services in this part of London may also be busier than usual.

The bus routes affected by the strike include:

Route Number Route description
13 (24hr)  North Finchley to/from Victoria Station
23 (24hr)  Great Western Road to/from Aldwych
28  Wandsworth to/from Harlesden
218  Hammersmith to/from North Acton
295 (24hr)  Ladbrooke Grove to/from Clapham Junction
414  Putney Bridge to/from Marble Arch
452  Ladbrook Grove to/from Vauxhall
N28  Wandsworth to/from Camden

A normal service is expected on all of London’s other bus routes.

Louise Cheeseman, TfL’s Director of Buses, said: “If this action goes ahead there will still be travel options for people in west London and other parts of the capital. Other routes may be busier than normal and we’re encouraging everyone who might be affected to plan ahead, allow extra time for their journeys and check before they travel using our website or the TfL Go app.

“We encourage both parties to find a solution to this dispute to avoid disruption to Londoners. We’re sorry for any disruption to people’s journeys.”

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.
