London commuters had to deal with another bus driver’s day long strike with around half of all services affected.
Transport for London said there was significant disruption across London from four am Thursday morning and impacting on the night bus services operating Thursday night, Friday morning.
TfL say all the bus routes should be operating normally Friday.
Customers with a Bus & Tram Pass season ticket were advised they could use it on the Underground, DLR and London Overground.
This did put pressure on the services running normally.
