London bus users, be warned – there’s a major strike en route.

More than 950 Abellio drivers, part of the Unite union, are set to walkout over 10 days in November and December over an ongoing pay dispute.

Today (November 22) is the first planned day of action, which means you’ll need to think carefully if you need to commute around the capital.

So, while we know a good number of buses will be affected, are trains going to be affected by this strike, too? And is the London Underground aka the Tube on today during it?

Here’s all you need to know.

Are trains and Tubes running today amid London bus strike?

Yes, train and Tube services in the capital will be running as normal today.

However, you can probably expect these services to busy as bus users seek out other modes of transportation.

The Elizabeth Line will run as normal from 8.30am, says TfL’s website (Picture: Getty)

Though if there’s anything affecting services beyond the bus strike, you can check the different lines here.

There was a Network Rail strike yesterday, which impacted Elizabeth Line services, however Transport for London’s (TfL) website notes that it should be running as normal from 8.30am this morning.
