TfL has released a new app to make it easier for customers to plan ahead and travel safely.
The new iPhone app, TfL Go, provides real-time train times in a mobile-friendly way and information to enable travel at quieter times outside peak hours to help customers maintain social distancing.
The app also offers alternative routes and walking and cycling options. These features will develop further based on customer feedback.
TfL intends to release an Android version in the autumn, with further updates later in the year. New features will include live bus information, lift status and the location of toilets.
Heidi Alexander, deputy mayor for transport, said: “London’s transport network is central to life in our city and essential to our economic and social recovery from the pandemic.
“We are helping passengers to travel safely around the Capital by introducing a wide range of hygiene measures across the network, restoring public transport services to near-normal levels and creating more space for walking and cycling.
“However, Coronavirus will continue to have a significant impact on the way we move around our city for the foreseeable future and we still need Londoners to work with us for everyone’s safety.
“This means continuing to maintain social distancing, wearing a face covering while using the network, avoiding travelling at peak times when you can, and walking and cycling where possible when arriving at mainline central London train stations.
“The rollout of TfL’s new app will help Londoners by equipping them with the information they need to make safe travel choices, whether it be for work or for leisure.”
