Things you should know...
Lots of work has been done to ensure the transport system operates effectively at Games-time. However, even with this work, there are certain times and locations where it will be exceptionally busy and travellers will need to plan their journeys around these hotspots. To manage the large number of additional passengers, transport systems will operate differently.
Visit our Things you should know pages for more information on changes to transport during the Games and useful downloads for London Boroughs.
Tube, DLR and Overground
During the Olympic Games, services will generally start between 5-5.30am as usual. However on Sundays Tube services will start 30-45 minutes earlier than usual, at around 6.30am. This will vary by line and station so check the TfL journey planner and local publicity for revised train times.
The Tube and DLR services will run around 60 minutes later than normal on all days, including Sundays. Last trains from central London will leave around 1.30am.
During the Olympic Games, the Tube will run extra evening services on the Jubilee, Central and District lines. There will be more trains running in the late evening from Friday 3 August, when events start at the Olympic Stadium.
On certain days and at certain times of day during the Games, some stations will operate differently. Measures may include entry or exit only at some stations, one-way movement within the station or station closures at stations where capacity is not high enough to deal with the demand. These changes will be signed within the affected stations in advance so you can plan for these different operational measures.
There will be a high level of demand for lifts at key stations. So some accessible stations are expected to be exceptionally busy at certain times, on certain days during the Games. Find out more information on accessible travel on the Tube, DLR and Overground during the Games.
Buses might be a good travel alternative for you during the Games. However, some bus routes will be diverted and/or disrupted due to road closures when road events are taking place, and other operational measures, such as banned turns and clearway restrictions.
Extra buses will be added on some routes, where necessary, to cater for additional passengers.

Taking the river to get to your destination might be a good option for you and there will be more river services in operation during the Games.
Make sure you book your river travel in advance with Thames Clipper and City Cruises.
If you own, operate or plan to travel by boat during the Games, make sure you read more information on river services and boating facilities.
London has a wide range of accessible transport options, to ensure people with a disability or reduced mobility can get around. However, at certain times during the Games, accessible stations and the transport system, including facilities such as lifts, will be much busier than usual and you could face delays. Planning your journey in advance will be essential. Find out more information on accessible travel during the Games.
