Rail traffic and public transport in North Rhine-Westphalia will be largely paralyzed by a strike on Monday (March 27). However, some lines should still be served.

Dusseldorf – Large parts of NRW will be paralyzed by a veritable mega strike on Monday (March 27). The Verdi and EVG unions are calling for a nationwide all-day warning strike. According to Verdi, this affects, among other things, public transport in many NRW cities, but according to the EVG also the trains of Deutsche Bahn and other railway companies. It must currently be assumed that most buses, trains and regional trains in NRW will be canceled on Monday. Long-distance traffic, i.e. ICE and IC, is also affected by the strike.

Mega strike in NRW: why some buses and trains can still run

In some cases, buses and trains will probably still run. Locally, for example, when they are served by subcontractors who are not on strike. This has been the case several times in recent weeks with the Rheinbahn in Düsseldorf and the KVB in Cologne.

And: There are also train providers who are not on strike. These also serve some regional transport lines in NRW. National Express and RheinRuhrBahn have already confirmed that they will not be on strike. However, the strike could also lead to failures there, for example because signal boxes are not manned, according to the providers. Nevertheless, NRW commuters can at least hope to get to their destination on Monday with some train lines.
