My manager informed me today that there is a bus And train strike this Friday but that as 'some' busses are running I'm still expected into work.
Does anyone know if ideally the 176 is running or the 12 ?
That way I stand a chance of getting in with not much of a walk at either end.
Or Southern rail?
Are they running?
I cant seem to find this information out.
Many thanks.

The 176 and 12 are running. Can't help with the trains I'm afraid.

All of our routes are operating as normal on Friday.

The bus strike largely affects West/SW London and parts of North Surrey.

Thank you SO much!
i asked at the station this morning about Friday travel and they said 'some' trains will run but didn't seem to know what ones. or when.
I think Busses will be safest option then!
I also received the TFL email which I found lacking in information aside from the usual
"avoid travelling'
Great if you can WFH sadly not everyone is a job whereby this is an option.
