Take a look at the travel advice to help you keep safe whilst travelling around London. 

Walking & Cycling

  • We are encouraging students and colleagues to walk and cycle when possible.

  • Bike Storage facilities are open as usual – information on these can be found here

  • Take the free TFL Cycle Skills Course – aimed at bothe those cycling for the first time or those wishing to refresh their skills.

  • Make the most of Streetspace for London – find out where additional cycle lanes and wider pavements have been introduced.

Public Transport


  • If you need to use public transport please plan your trip and travel at the quiet times if possible (between 08:15-16:00 and after 17:30). You can check the busiest times for stations here.

  • Use the new travel app, TFL Go. Check the busiest stations, stops and routes on the TFL network.

  • Use contactless or Oyster to pay for your travel. (if you’re 18 or over, a student and living in a London borough, you can get discounted travel with an Oyster photocard)

  • Check the safer travel information sheet

  • Check the Office for Students’ guide to coronavirus for more information

  • Capacity has been reduced on bus services. You can also check for change here There are dedicated school services, for children, which should be avoided – these stop running at 9:30am and start again at 2:30pm weekdays. These will be clearly signed so please avoid them

Take a look at the video below to see what steps TFL are taking to keep everyone safe.

Wear A Face Covering

Whilst travelling on any TFL service you must wear a mask for the full duration of your journey. The face covering must go over your mouth and nose. We’d recommend a reusable covering to help protect the environment too!
A minimum fine of £200 can issued if you are caught not wearing one.

Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands before and after your journey is still one of the most effective ways of preventing the spread of Covid-19.
