A woman from Bournemouth on her way to a hospital appointment, a recruitment consultant and an acupuncturist took on the challenge of boarding a 139 bus during Wednesday's Tube strike.
BBC reporter Gareth Furby randomly chose a bus stop in Waterloo to see how people were coping with getting on a bus.
"It's interesting to learn the transportation culture of London," said one Swedish businessman.
