Monday morning was the busiest rush hour on the Tube since the first national lockdown in March 2020, according to Transport for London (TfL). Data showed 831,000 taps into the Tube network between 07:00 and 10:00 BST and 860,000 registered passengers on buses. Many children have returned to school this week, impacting the numbers, but TfL said the data chimed with recent passenger trends. However, numbers are still far behind the pre-pandemic highs – with nearly twice as many passengers using the Tube before Covid.
