Less passengers, reduced services
The use of public transport has dramatically dropped due to the coronavirus epidemic. As reduced ticket revenue is making a hefty dent in our finances, we need to better align service demand and supply.
On the other hand, we are striving to ensure that those still using public transport can get around as smoothly as possible. With the reduced summer service, we are able to ensure as reliable transport services as possible in exceptional circumstances, for example, should a large number of operator staff be absent due to the epidemic.
The reduced summer service means that bus services are reduced by about 20 percent. On the other hand, in March, public transport passenger numbers fell by over 70 percent from February. On average, there is plenty of room in the vehicles. However, we still recommend people to avoid unnecessary travel and where possible, to travel outside peak times.
The metro, trams and trains will continue to operate to their current timetables. There will be changes to tram timetables on 4 May. We will provide information about these and any other changes in due course.
