The tube may be down – but these ‘rainbow’ modes of transport aren’t!

The tube strike is causing untold carnage around the city of London today – but fear not, as these rainbow themed alternatives are still available for use!

The city’s special pride-themed bus – which was launched earlier this year – is still in ferrying passengers from A to B.

The bus runs on the number 8 route from Bow Church in Tower Hamlets to Tottenham Court Road – passing some of London’s most iconic landmarks – why not use the strike as an excuse to take the scenic route?

Or maybe you’d prefer to avoid the rush and take a ride in this special rainbow themed taxi?

Transport for London unveiled the specially-designed new black ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) back in May.

Or if you’re traveling between Canary Wharf and Stratford, why not save time and jump on this train – the city’s first pride-themed rail service?

Ahead of this year’s London Pride parade, Tfl gave this Docklands Light Railway train a rather colourful makeover!

All three modes of transport will be running throughout today’s strike, which has seen the city come to a stand still. Services are expected to fully resume by early tomorrow morning (August 7).
