While the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) service is at a standstill, we have a few options for how to leave Canary Wharf.

DLR services are not runing until Thursday, November 5, after staff, who are part of the Rail Maritime and Transport union, staged a 48 hour walkout from Tuesday, November 3.

The Jubilee line is running, despite worries it may be closed, but expect to queue to get into the station. Typical waiting times are between 20 to 45 minutes.

The Thames Clipper is running extra services than normal, but there are still queues getting onto the service. Typical waiting times are around 20 minutes.

Also, if you fancy just taking a jolly on the Emirates Air Line it's free for the duration of the strike.
