Travel disruption notes

METROPOLITAN LINE: Until further notice, due to staff shortages in our control room there could be short notice alterations to Metropolitan line and parts of the Piccadilly line and Chiltern Railways services. This will affect weekday and weekend service and at times will mean there is a reduced service, or no service on this line.

We are committed to helping London's schools remain open and operate safely and to help this we will be adding over 200 extra buses to our network from Monday 8 March. We will also be prioritising some of our bus services for school travel from this date. Government guidance allows for all seats to be occupied on these 'school services', doubling their capacity, which is currently limited due to necessary social distancing. These 'school services' will be clearly signed and will operate on several key routes between 0730-0900 (some routes will run until 0930) and 1430-1630 on weekdays. On designated routes 'school services' will operate on an every other bus basis. We ask that schoolchildren travelling without adults use the designated 'school services' where these are provided, to help ensure space for customers on other services.
