Commuters warned over Paralympic delays
Travel bosses have outlined plans to cope with the "huge challenge" of the Paralympic Games as London's transport network prepares for another influx of visitors.
Transport for London (TfL) has urged commuters to plan ahead and avoid travel hotspots during the Games, with traffic expected to be much heavier as schools return from their summer breaks.
Premier League football matches in the capital, BBC Proms in the Park and the Thames Festival are also expected to heap more pressure on the transport network when the Games take place from August 29 to Sunday September 9.
TfL has warned that the Jubilee Line from Waterloo to Stratford, the Central Line from Holborn to Stratford and the entire Docklands Light Railway (DLR) will see the largest number of passengers during the Games, particularly between the peak hours of 7.30am to 9.30am and 4pm to 7pm.
Some key national rail stations, such as King's Cross, St Pancras, London Bridge, Paddington, Waterloo and Victoria are also expected to be busier than normal around these times.
London Underground, the DLR and London Overground will run an hour later during the Games, with the last trains leaving central London and Paralympic venues at around 1.30am.
