Waiting …

The industrial action is to take place on different days throughout the week, depending on the federal state. If the strikes go ahead as planned and with a high level of participation, considerable restrictions on local public transport services are to be expected. There may also be inconveniences before and after the official strike times for organizational reasons.

Trade unions have called a strike at the BVG for Monday, February 26, 2024. The strike will run from 3 am to 2 pm. Unfortunately, passengers must expect restrictions on bus, streetcar and subway services on Monday as a result of the strike call. The BVG will try to compensate for cancellations at short notice. S-Bahn will be running more trains than usual in order to help BVG passengers!
