Transport for London - Weekend travel information


If you are out and about this weekend, please note that there are planned works taking place on certain parts of the network.

Customers must continue to wear a face covering on our services and in stations for the duration of their journey unless they are exempt. This includes the Tube, bus, tram, DLR, London Overground and TfL Rail networks, Dial-a-Ride services, the Emirates Air Line and the Woolwich ferry. 

We have more than 500 uniformed officers who are undertaking compliance activity on our network across London and non-exempt customers who fail to comply may be refused travel.

We also expect and recommend the continued use of face coverings in taxis and private hire vehicles by both drivers and passengers unless they are exempt. 

We are very grateful to the overwhelming majority of customers who have been complying with this requirement.

Please keep washing or sanitising your hands to help everyone stay safe. You can find out more about what we are doing to keep our services clean.

Our TfL Go app will help you plan your journey and show you the quieter times to travel. It also shows how busy Tube stations are throughout the day.

The quieter times currently are:
  • Between 08:15 and 16:00 and after 17:30 on weekdays
  • Before noon and after 18:00 on weekends
