When is a Good Service not a Good Service?

RMT Reps have been fighting hard to ensure passengers are given clear and accurate service information and have directly requested that the TFL website more honestly reflects the state of the service.

When is a Good Service not a Good Service?

Answer: When it’s Part Suspended

Since Wednesday 14th November the Piccadilly Line has been suspended between Rayners Lane and Uxbridge with a greatly reduced Piccadilly Line service on the Uxbridge Branch. Frustratingly the TFL website has insisted on advertising a “Good Service”.
