Commuters in London queue for a water taxi to take them along the Thames as London Underground workers begin the first of a series of 24-hour strikes.
The Tube strike severely disrupted services forcing many commuters to walk.
Overground services were also much busier than usual as people tried to find alternative means of getting to work.
Information boards at Paddington train station showed the extent of Tube service cancellations and delays.
Transport for London said there had been a 60% rise in people using the cycle hire scheme.
Commuters suffered further disruption when rail services into London were affected as a lorry crashed into a railway bridge at Haslemere in Surrey.
Extra buses were laid on but there were still queues to get on.
Transport hubs such as Finsbury Park were inundated with people wanting to travel.
Platforms at stations where services were running became very crowded.
The few Tube services that were running were jam-packed with travellers.
A number of picket lines formed at several stations by striking RMT and TSSA members.
