London Travel Alexa Skill
See the topics below for help with the London Travel Alexa skill.
Installing the skill
You can install the Alexa skill from the amazon.co.uk website.
Checking for disruption
To check for disruption on any of the supported Transport for London (TfL) lines, ask:
"Alexa, ask London Travel are there any line closures?"
The following lines are currently supported:
- All London Underground tube lines
- Docklands Light Railway (DLR)
- London Overground
- TfL Rail
Checking the status of a specific line
To check for the status of a specific London Underground line, the DLR, London Overground or TfL Rail, ask Alexa about the line you are interested in. For example:
"Alexa, ask London Travel what's the status of the Northern line?"
Asking about your commute
Once you have selected at least one favourite line for your commute, you can ask Alexa about your commute. Alexa will respond by telling you the status for each of your favourite lines.
