Service & Traffic Update

All the latest updates to our services in one place

As one of the busiest cities in the world, there is always something exciting happening in London. From parades and races to festivals and celebrations, you can almost guarantee there is a big event happening each month.

Whilst these city-wide events are lots of fun to watch and take part in, they can sometimes cause disruptions to our bus tours which are out of our control. To avoid disappointment, please take note of the London events throughout the year which may affect our service. Plan ahead for your day of sightseeing with Tootbus and make the most of your time in London.

If you need to know more about current service updates, speak to a member of staff at our bus stops or on board our buses for the most up to date information or contact us.
