Passengers travelling into and around London will continue to be hit by travel chaos today (December 14).
Southern Rail strikes have entered their second day as part of three strikes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (December 13, 14 and 16).
But the Aslef union has said that formal discussions will take placed today with transport bosses in a bid to resolve the dispute, although the strike will still go ahead.
Meanwhile there will continue to be "severe delays" on the Piccadilly Line because some trains on the line have been taken out of service so their wheels can be repaired.
London Underground tickets are being accepted on local buses, Chiltern Railways, Great Western Railway, South West Trains, Great Northern and London Overground.

When will the underground delays end?
Transport for London has denied RMT claims Piccadilly line delays could ‘last until February’.
A RMT spokesman said:
Our position remains the same.
You have only got to look at the daily situation on the Piccadilly line and the current availability of trains.
We have been told that the situation is going to go on until February.
It doesn’t make any sense when the daily service is currently a skeleton service to start running the Night Tube on the line.
We think the Night Tube operation should be suspended until the fleet problems have been resolved.
The Night Tube is due to start on the Piccadilly line this Friday
A statement from Govia Thameslink Railway said this afternoon:
Talks have adjourned for today. We are reconvening tomorrow morning at Acas.
Upgrades in 2017 to 2020 will 'go ahead' on Piccadilly Line
There is frequency of '20 minutes'
Scheduled services 'may not arrive'
'Good service' on Victoria Line
Talks to start at ACAS at 10am
Talks between transport bosses and Aslef will start at 10am today, RMT have said.
