Unlocking West London and Royal Docks by river with new services

Last year in the summer we expanded our weekend services to some piers in the West Zone and we are really excited to have now introduced an hourly off-peak daytime service on weekdays to all piers in the West Zone, with the exception of Cadogan Pier, but also to Royal Wharf Pier.

The changes will see piers to the west of the city as well as Royal Wharf, which were previously only utilised during commuter hours, now served throughout the day making it easier for residents to travel into central London and beyond. It also offers an alternative mode of transport for Londoners who wish to explore the neighbourhoods of Chelsea, Wandsworth, Putney and the Royal Docks (ExCeL, City Airport)!
