Service Changes - Uber Boat by Thames Clippers

Weekday off-peak service to the East Zone and more

Last updated: Thursday 04 July 2024

From Monday 15 July 2024 we  will be making changes to our weekday and weekend timetable.

We’re excited to announce that we are expanding our River Bus services to/from Barking Riverside, Woolwich (Royal Arsenal) and Royal Wharf piers during off-peak hours Monday to Friday.

The weekday introduction of the hourly RB5 shuttle between Barking Riverside and North Greenwich, in addition to the existing weekend service, extends the operating hours to a full service allowing residents to travel into central London more easily for business or leisure. This will be implemented as a summer trial, and the continuation of this new link will be reviewed later in the year.

Passengers can interchange at North Greenwich Pier to continue their journey into central London as far west as Battersea Power Station or further afield to Putney Pier.

In addition, we'll be adding an extra RB6 and RB2 sailing both Westbound and Eastbound to enhance our late-night coverage and meet the growing demand for evening travel options.

For the best experience always check the timetable before travelling.

Summary of changes from 15 July:


  • RB5:
    • Introduction of  an hourly RB5 shuttle between North Greenwich and Barking Riverside piers, stopping also at Royal Wharf and Woolwich (Royal Arsenal).
  • RB6:
    • Current RB6 services running off-peak to Royal Wharf will terminate at North Greenwich Pier.

Extra weekday sailings from Monday 10 June

From Monday 10 June, we’ll be introducing additional off-peak daytime services between Tower and Battersea Power Station with stops at London Bridge City, Embankment and Blackfriars piers. Eastbound sailings will also include a stop at London Eye (Waterloo) Pier.

These extra weekday sailings will help accommodate the increased demand during the busier summer period and implement an all-day service at Blackfriars Pier.
