LU is consulting with trade unions and staff over the closure of ticket offices and the introduction of a 24 hour weekend service on some lines.
Two 48-hour strikes have been called at LU which will affect services from:
- Around 9.30pm on Tuesday 4 February until the morning of Friday 7 February; and,
- Around 9.30pm on Tuesday 11 February until the morning of Friday 14 February.
Should the RMT and TSSA strike action go ahead, LU will keep as many stations open and run as many trains as possible.
Services will be affected from 21:30hrs on Tuesday 4 February so customers are asked to try to complete journeys as early as possible that evening.
If your Oyster card needs topping up, it may help to do this in advance of the industrial action starting.
There will be disruption to journeys on Wednesday and Thursday, when Tube services will start later and finish earlier than normal - trains will run from around 07:00hrs to 23:00hrs.
Trained TfL Ambassadors and volunteers will also be on hand to provide customers with travel information and advice on the ground.
TfL urges all customers to plan ahead and to check before they travel at tfl.gov.uk and by following @TfLTravelAlerts, @TfLTrafficNews and @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter.
