Londoners cope with bus drivers strike

1 Mins read

London commuters have faced travel torture as bus drivers went on strike across the city.

The strike which started on Tuesday morning is due to end on Wednesday morning.

The reaction on social media has been wide-ranging so far:

Although some bus services are not running, many buses are still on the road. Commuters should expect severe delays and cancellations as only 30 per cent of the services usually available are guaranteed.

The walkout is due to a pay disparity issue which Wayne King – London’s regional officer for Unite, the union that represents 27,000 bus workers across Greater London – blamed wholly on the 18 companies running the London bus network.
