Despite strike action on the Docklands Light Railway, servies are still running between London City Airport and Canning Town and Beckton and Poplar.
These trains are expected to stop running at 4pm due to staff shortages, and a similar level of service will run tomorrow between 7am and 4pm.
Tickets are being accepted on extra buses which are running along DLR routes.
The dispute is between the RMT Union and KeolisAmey Docklands Ltd, which operates the DLR.
RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “This dispute is over the fundamental issues of workplace justice, fairness, the outsourcing of key functions and sticking to agreements and practices that Keolis seem to believe that they can trample all over.
“RMT members employed by KAD have had enough of being treated like dirt.”
Services are likely to be disrupted on Good Friday morning and further walkouts are planned for the London Marathon weekend, beginning Friday, April 20.
