Beat the Tube strike: commute by river bus

As London faces Tube strike chaos again, the city's most scenic commuting option is busily adding extra morning and evening rush-hour services. During July's Underground walkout, Thames Clipper river buses saw a 72 per cent jump in passenger numbers.

Record numbers of Londoners are already choosing to commute by boat along the capital's 'forgotten highway' from homes alongside the central section of the Thames. Three services an hour whisk commuters from Woolwich, in travel Zone 4, to Canary Wharf within 30 minutes, while London Bridge City Pier is a 40-minute commute by river run.

Beat the next Tube strike and join our tour of hot homes with easy river commutes, from Wandsworth to Woolwich.
