London bus strike: which services are affected?

Just 47% of buses are running today. Here’s what’s going on

Less than a month after the last bus strike, they’re at it again.

It is the first of three 24-hour bus strikes due to hit the capital this month.

Members of the Unite union began the strike at midnight last night, over a row about pay differences between the 18 different companies that run London’s bus network.

Unite described the pay situation as being in “chaos”.

Meanwhile, TfL said the strikes were “totally unnecessary”.

Here is a list of the bus companies affected by the strike action:

·        Abellio (Abellio London and Abellio West London)

·        Arriva (Arriva North and Arriva South)

·        CT Plus (Hackney Community Transport)

·        Go Ahead (Blue Triangle, Docklands, London General, London Central, Metrobus)

·        London Sovereign

·        London United

·        Metroline (Metroline and Metroline West)

·        Stagecoach (East London Bus & Coach Company, Selkent)

·        Tower Transit

 Here are the services not affected, according to TfL:
