Public transport strikes in Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam

Public transport strikes will take place in Rotterdam (RET), The Hague (HTM, RandstadRail) and Amsterdam (GVB) on May 11, 12 and 13 respectively.

More specifically, there will be no buses, trams or metro services until 8.30am while irregular schedules, delays and cancellations may follow.

Deep cuts to public transportation funding and programmes (120 million euros) by the government will lead to overcrowded vehicles, longer waiting times and less security, according to the employees.
