STANDARD 06:05 Tube lines running

If today's services are similar to yesterday's, then this is what will run:

Waterloo and City Line: No service.

The following lines should run from one end of the line to the other - albeit with station closures. So it's best to check before you travel on the Northern Line, the Jubilee Line and the Victoria Line.

Circle Line: Running between Hammersmith and Aldgate, but there are station closures along the route.

Hammersmith and City Line: Should run but only between Edgware Road and Barking, again with station closures along the way.

Piccadilly Line: No service except between Hammersmith & Heathrow Terminal 1, 2 and 3, and between Arnos Grove and Cockfosters. It won't be calling at Heathrow Terminal 4 or 5.

District Line: Patchy service with some stations closed en route.

Central Line: Trains should run from the far west and eastern parts of the route but trains may not stop at all the stations on the line.

STANDARD 06:10 Stations closed

TfL has a list of which stations are closed and which are open.

This changes constantly as they figure out what staff they have so check back regularly to see how your station is affected by the strike.
