Event

Bus and train staff affiliated with the FNV labor union plan to strike Feb. 22 and 24, to demand increased salaries. The strike will likely disrupt trains and bus services operated by Arriva, Transdev, Qbuzz, EBS, Keolis, RET Bus, Hermes, and Connexxion. Whilst the industrial action is national, the impact will vary by region and city.

Delays and cancelations of bus and some train services are likely: recent strikes have impacted around 50 percent of services. The action could result in increased traffic congestion and greater demand for alternative modes of transport. Related demonstrations are possible in town and city centers or near transport nodes. Any pickets that do occur are likely to be peaceful and largely undisruptive.

Advice

Confirm public transport schedules and local traffic conditions before travel and allow extra time to complete journeys Feb. 22 and 24. Make alternative travel arrangements if necessary.
