Public transport strike Netherlands May 28th effecting Zuiderdam visit Amsterdam!

Recommended Posts

Warning: Public transport strike Netherlands May 28th effecting Zuiderdam visit to Amsterdam!

 

A Public transport strike is planned for May 28th in the Netherlands. There will be  24 hours strike effecting all trains and also all city public transport in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.


Strike could be spreading to other sectors, they are related to the pension age, so affecting all working sectors in the Netherlands.


If you do a ships tour, these most probably won’t be effected, but if you plan to go on your own, do not expect any public transport within the mentioned city’s, nor trains in the whole country. Also expect an increase in road traffic, due to the absence of public transport, more people will have to use cars, that normally would travel by public transport.

 

News media in Dutch, but you can use google translate;

Thank you, what a hassle for anyone trying to DIY at that time.  Will be there in early September using trains and other transport (hopefully). 🙂

Thank you for the information.

 

It certainly will affect those people wanting to do their own tours.

We fly in the following week. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the one-day strike remains just that.
