Warning Strike in Regional Bus Services in Germany

Warning Strike in Regional Bus Services in Germany

The ver.di trade union has called for all-day warning strikes in regional bus services on May 25 and 26, 2023. The VVS is impacting the bus companies LVL in Ludwigsburg, OVG and Hildenbrand in Göppingen, and Spillmann in the Bietigheim-Bissingen region. Passengers can view a list of which bus companies are on the warning strike on which day below. Not all bus companies will be on strike on both days. The warning strike in regional bus services may also have an impact on other bus operators. The SSB’s buses and trains, as well as the S-Bahn and regional trains, won’t be participating in the strike and will operate as normal.

VVS advises travelers to check their connections via the VVS app or online at vvs.de on the warning strike day. The timetable information will either keep or withdraw the strike-affected lines based on the available information. On strike days, the journey connections automatically show without the strike-affected modes of transportation. A fast assessment of whether a link is also achievable without a bus, maybe accompanied with a longer walk, is provided to passengers.

The section “Clever combinations” contains information about this.
