MOURNING THE QUEEN: TfL invites taxi drivers and passengers to take part in TWO national silences

Taxi drivers and their onboard passengers have been invited to pull over and respect two national silences in remembrance of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Transport for London (TfL) will be inviting customers to take part in the National Moment of Reflection marked by observing a one-minute silence at 8pm on Sunday 18 September, the night before the State Funeral. A further national two-minute silence will take place at around 11.55am on 19 September.

Taxis and private hire drivers and passengers are invited to observe the minute silence. Buses will also pull over if it is safe and practical to do so and will switch their engines off.

Services across London Underground, London Overground, DLR, London Trams and the Elizabeth line will also take part. Announcements to customers will be made just before the minute silence and services will continue to run.

Road closures and diversions will continue until after Monday 19 September as event infrastructure is removed. This is expected to take several days, so customers should continue to check before they travel as it will take some time to return to normal
