Actual overview strikes (in Dutch)
Personel of NS, HTM. GVB and RET (metro) will not strike.
The 9292 planner is continuously updated with information from the public transport companies and automatically provides alternative travel advice where possible with public transport that does run (on the day of the strike).
The public transport companies try to run the normal timetables as much as possible with the employees who are not on strike and have reported as willing to work. Therefore, despite the strike, you might still see a bus passing by. The public transport companies try to provide an active timetable for our travellers where possible.
Unfortunately, the public transport companies only know shortly in advance which buses can run and which cannot. This depends on how many employees - who are on duty on the strike day - go on strike. The public transport companies try to remove cancelled itineraries from the travel planners as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it may sometimes occur that during a strike, the travel information system through which the carriers communicate cancelled rides to 9292, becomes overloaded. As a result, the planners may not always be up-to-date.
Plan your trip as soon as possible before departure via our travel planner on 9292.nl/en or in the 9292 app for up-to-date travel information. We also mention exceptions and interruptions on this website and in the travel planner.
Unfortunately, during a public transport strike, it may happen that the cancelled itinerary has not been deleted from the planner by the carrier. If the travel information system of the public transport companies has problems with overload, the trip may not be received from the planner. In addition, the transport company sometimes only knows at the very last moment whether a bus or train driver is on strike. In the 9292 planner you can also adjust the travel advice yourself via 'options' to see if you can also get to your destination without using a regional bus or regional train.
No, 9292 is not a carrier and is therefore not on strike. 9292 is an online platform that provides travel information and up-to-date information to help travellers to get to their final destination, also during a period of strikes.
