Tube strikes – January 2024
RMT strikes on the Tube are currently planned in early January.
If they go ahead, there will be severe disruption on the London Underground network from the evening of Sunday 7 January through to the morning of Friday 12 January.
- Sunday 7 January: Tube services will close earlier than normal. Complete Tube journeys by 17:30
- Monday 8 to Thursday 11 January: Severe disruption is expected, with little to no service expected to run
- Friday 12 January: Tube services will start later than normal, with a good service expected by midday
No other TfL services will be on strike.
Some bus, DLR, London Overground, Elizabeth line and national rail services will be busier. They may also be subject to change or affected by station closures where stations also serve London Underground lines.
One-way or queueing systems may also be in place at stations, and step-free access may be affected.
If you need to travel during this time, plan ahead, check before you travel and allow more time for your journey.

London Underground strike
There will be “little to no Tube service” on the London Underground, Transport for London (TfL) has said, as strike action is planned.
Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) members working on different parts of the Underground will strike on separate days between 5 and 12 January.
However, passengers will not feel the full impact of the strike until Sunday evening when Tube services are wound down.
It comes amid a dispute over pay.
RMT members voted overwhelmingly to take the industrial action over a 5% pay offer.
Glynn Barton, TfL’s chief operating officer, said the pay rise was “the most we can afford”.
