The "absolute carnage" of Londoners' commutes today (Monday January 9) will not come to an end at 6pm, despite the 24-hour tube strike coming to a halt.
Although the walkout is due to end during rush hour, Transport for London (TfL) has warned those travelling that normal services will not resume until Tuesday morning.
A TfL official said: "Customers are advised that although the strike ends at 6pm, services are expected to be disrupted throughout the day and evening and journeys should be completed by 6pm.
"TfL is deploying Travel Ambassadors in order to help customers get around the city and around 150 extra buses are deployed to enhance existing routes."
The dispute between RMT union and TfL bosses began after the closure of ticket offices and cuts of over 800 staff members, which unions argue is making London "less safe".
However, TfL argue that it is likely to recruit more staff.
A spokesman for the organisation said: "It is clear that 200 extra staff are currently being recruited for stations and this number is likely to increase.
"Taking into account existing vacancies and natural turnover, this means that over 600 staff will be recruited for stations this year."
Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) Union has accused TfL of openly lying about figures, as well as how many tube stations are running.
General Secretary Mick Cash of RMT said: "It does no one any favours for TFL to openly lie about how many Tube services are running.
"It just piles more people into stations that are already dangerously over crowded and ramps up the risk of a major crushing incident.
"TFL should stop peddling their fantasy world of services that are operating when the truth is that London is on an almost total shutdown."
Those trying to get home this evening are reminded that Piccadilly line services are running from Hammersmith to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2 and 3, and from Uxbridge and Acton Town to Heathrow Terminal 5.
However, there are no services at all on the Victoria or Waterloo & City lines.
