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


A planned strike by station staff on the metro network on Monday June 6 is expected to cause “severe distribution” and further increase demand for taxis.

Transport for London (TfL) says it will keep as many stations open as possible, but the strike is still expected to cause serious disruption and close many Tube stations during the day.

On Monday, June 6, many metro stations will be closed all day. TfL urges travelers to make journeys after 8am and complete their journey by 6pm. Rail services will operate but many stations, especially those in the center, will be closed.

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

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

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