Thames Clipper 'closed for now'

The London riverboat service Thames Clipper has been building up nicely in recent years and normally carries up to 10,000 passengers daily.  It provided a commuting service for many but is now one of many casualties of COVID-19.

Sean Collins, CEO and co-founder, has announced the cancellation of all services until further notice.

“This decision has not been taken lightly. However, at this time, as a privately-owned business, it is no longer viable for us to continue to run our services.

“Over the past week, services have been increasingly reduced to keep in line with the latest travel guidance, whilst being mindful of doing all that was possible to continue to support those Thames Clippers customers for whom commuting to work is critical”.

“We continue to closely monitor the situation, and will reinstate our service to keep London moving as soon as it is safe to do so.”
