As Londoners prepare to return to more office-based work, choose a safe commute with social distancing and a guaranteed seat with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers’ Park and Glide tickets. The Park and Glide offer enables commuters secure car parking and a return River Bus journey through the capital.
Don’t live close to a pier? Not a problem. Perfect for those who live in or near South East London, you can avoid London’s ULEZ, Congestion Zone and costly central parking charges. Drive to The O2 in North Greenwich and park securely before sailing into Canary Wharf, or any of the many central London piers with the city’s leading River Bus service. Enjoy a comfortable commute with enhanced safety and hygiene measures, free-flowing air inside the spacious cabin and a coffee and croissant from the on-board bar as you make your way back to work. The outside deck also provides the perfect viewing platform for taking in the iconic skyline along the way.
Uber Boat by Thames Clippers has implemented a range of enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures to allow for a safer transport option through London, including contactless journeys, face masks worn by all passengers and crew, enhanced deep cleaning and reduced capacities on board. With the new measures in place, the operator carries just 1.1 passengers per square metre, compared to 1.3 passengers per square metre currently on the London Underground.
Park and Glide tickets start from just £18. Flexible carnet ticket options also offer an alternative to season tickets for those travelling into the office less frequently, allowing you to make 4 or 6 journeys over one week, or 10 or 20 journeys over three months; saving up to 20% on paying as you go using Oyster or contactless payment cards.
Serving the capital for over 20 years, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers links 23 piers across the city, with peak time departures every 20-30 minutes between key London piers. The operator is currently running a bespoke timetable.
