Thames Clippers, an alternative to South Western Railway strike
In preparation for the planned South Western Railway strike, between 2-29 December Thames Clippers will be bolstering its RB6 capacity during the peak morning commute enabling South West London commuters to take the River Bus into the capital. The frequent RB1 service also serves Battersea Power Station with departures every 20 minutes.
With its RB6 service calling at piers in Putney, Wandsworth Riverside Quarter, Plantation Wharf, Chelsea Harbour, Cadogan, Battersea Power Station and St George Wharf (Vauxhall), Thames Clippers takes passengers from the south west of the capital into commuting hubs like Embankment, Blackfriars, Tower, London Bridge City and Canary Wharf.
Avoid the crowds and commute in style, taking advantage of a guaranteed comfortable seat, a heated cabin, views of the city and an on-board bar to purchase refreshments and beverages with which to start and end the workday.
Thames Clippers’ RB6 service operates frequent departures serving piers between Putney and Canary Wharf.
Take the stress out of commuting and buy a season ticket via the Thames Clippers ticketing app, starting from £27 for a one-week (West Only) season ticket. Alternatively, passengers are able to use contactless payment and Oyster to pay as you go with Thames Clippers, making river travel this December easier. Those commuters that do not need to travel everyday should also consider a carnet: 10 pre-paid journeys for the price of 9, available via the Thames Clippers app.
