New timetable from April 1st

Our summer timetable will go live on April 1st 2017; this will affect the RB1, RB1X, RB2, RB4, RB5 and RB6 services.

The changes incorporate better connections between RB1 and RB4, shorter journey times from Embankment during the PM peak and improved reliability for RB1/RB1X at weekends. The RB2 service will no longer call at St George Wharf Pier, but will now call at Millbank, Embankment, Bankside and London Bridge.

‚ÄčOn April 1st 2017 there will also be changes to some of our prices. Our Standard fares for West Zone, Central Zone and Central & West Zone travel will increase, subsequently Travelcard fares for these Zones will increase to maintain the 1/3 off Standard fare discount.

Embankment Pier closure

We apologise for the disruption whilst Embankment Pier has been closed. Transport for London have confirmed that the pier will reopen to all services by Easter. In the meantime please continue to use Westminster for RB1 and RB6 services.

The emergency works needed to be carried out following the structural failure of the floating pontoon tanks that support the main access walkways onto the pier, new pontoons are currently under construction.

Once we have a date that services will recommence from the pier we will communicate this to our customers. We appreciate your patience whilst these works have been underway.

Twitter updates

For the most up to date information on our services please check our Twitter page @thamesclippers

Our fleet control update Twitter with delay information using TfL’s wording for delays. “Minor” refers to delays between 5-15 minutes. “Severe” refers to delays that are over 15 minutes. When a service is suspended between two piers this means that the service is not running at that time between the piers mentioned.

As delays on the river can be caused by a number of factors including pier congestion, passenger demand, tides and sometimes technical problems with the vessels, we always appreciate your patience while we manage the matter. We cannot always give a specific reason for each individual delay nor can our fleet control respond to individual tweets asking about the arrival time of your service.

Fog conditions

In extreme fog our services cannot operate, see more. Please check Twitter for latest updates.
