What’s happening in TFL London? The latest information and data to support it’s time to advertise.
Passenger numbers on TfL services jumped on 12th April as people rushed back to the capital’s shopping hotspots following the lifting of some lockdown restrictions. As of 10 am on 12th April, there were around 670,000 taps in and out of Tube stations, about a third of pre-pandemic levels. TfL said that this was a jump of 18 percent since last week. After nearly four long months of lockdown, people have been making the most of their newfound freedoms, crowding into pubs, shops, and hairdressers from opening time. The surge also seemed to spread to financial districts. A spokesperson for TfL told City A.M. that as of 4 pm taps in and out of City stations (including Canary Wharf) were up nearly a quarter – 23% – from last week.

As a result, it expected to operate up to 75% of its normal schedule for the summer season.
