As lockdown eases and people return to work, Transport for London has announced that the London Underground 's shortest line will be reopening from June 21. The Waterloo and City line runs between Waterloo and Bank stations with no stops, and as such primarily serves commuters coming into the financial district from South-West London, Surrey and Hampshire via Waterloo mainline station. When it reopens from June 21, the Waterloo and City line will run every five minutes Monday to Friday from 6am to 10am, and 3pm to 7pm. TfL hopes this will allow customers to spread their journeys to avoid busier times in the mornings and afternoons, and also add extra capacity during peak times.

Andy Lord, Managing Director of London Underground, said: "The reopening of the Waterloo and City line on June 21 will be a step back towards normality for London, as people who have been working from home return to offices in the City. "We're looking forward to welcoming customers back onto the network and helping the capital get back onto its feet again." As is the case across the whole London Underground network, the Waterloo and City line will be cleaned with hospital-grade cleaners that kill viruses and bacteria on contact and provide ongoing protection. It will also be well-ventilated, as the constant movement of trains and the frequent opening and closing of train doors means fresh air is always circulating.

TfL says that independent testing by Imperial College London, which has been carried out monthly since September and involves taking swabs of touch points in stations and air samples in ticket halls, has found no traces of coronavirus on the transport network.
