Since the pandemic began, how many times has TfL run a ‘Saturday service’ and for how long did it last? Please provide the dates it began and ended.

In addition to the usual Saturday timetables, Saturday service schedules were introduced during weekdays on some Transport for London (TfL) services in response to the outbreak of the pandemic. This helped TfL to maintain a reliable service at a time when many staff were unable to work because they were self-isolating, ill or clinically extremely vulnerable.

Saturday services also operated, as per usual, across some TfL services on Bank Holidays and some of the weekdays over the festive period.
