Tube stations begin phased return

When lockdown began in March, many Underground stations were closed with only key stations remaining open. 

On the May 18th, TfL annouced, following discussions with the Government before the announcement of the lockdown restrictions being lifted, an increase in public transport service levels to make journeys as safe as possible for people who have no alternative other than to use public transport as national restrictions on movement are cautiously and progressively lifted.

From next Monday (June 8th) some stations are reopening. This follows the government’s £1.6bn bailout for Transport for London that was agreed last week.

Next week the following stations will reopen:

  • Barbican
  • Caledonian Road
  • Holland Park
  • Mornington Crescent

This leaves still the majority of tube stations closed. Until further notice, Waterloo and City line services will remain closed with Night Tube or Night Overground services in operation. A reduced service will continue to operate across the Tube, London Overground, DLR, TfL Rail and London Trams.
