TUBE STRIKE set to increase demand for black cabs and minicabs warns TfL

Updated: Jun 5, 2022

A strike by station staff planned across the Tube network on Monday 6 June is expected to cause ‘severe disruption’ and increase demand further for taxis.

Transport for London (TfL) say they will keep as many stations as possible open, but it is still expected the strike will cause severe disruption and close many Tube stations on the day.

On Monday 6 June many of the Tube stations will be closed throughout the day. TfL are urging travellers to make journeys after 8am and complete their journey by 6pm. Train services will be running but many stations, especially those in the centre, will be closed.

The strike should not affect the new Elizabeth line, which is not a Tube service. However, services may be busier than usual, so the advise is to check before you travel.

Some stations may still be closed at the beginning of the day on 7 June. Services should be back to normal after 8am.

As a result of the closure, demand for taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs) is likely to be higher. A TfL spokesperson told the taxi and PHV sector: “We expect that this strike will cause severe disruption and the closure of many Tube stations. As a result, there is likely to be increased demand for taxi and private hire services. Visit the website for more information on the strike.”
