On Monday, the next BVG strike in Berlin. It is the third, and this time he will last the whole day. Here you will find the Service.
when will the strike: Monday, 1. April, from 3.30 PM the BVG strike begins - the trade Union Verdi is shutting down the Berlin public transport. "Our passengers have to adjust after the announcement, unfortunately, from the start of operation early Monday morning (3:30) until the end of the night Tuesday to substantial limitations in transport", - said in a first statement, the LOB of Friday morning.
Who is on strike? a Clear message from the BVG Headquarters. "We assume that all the metro and trams, and most buses are standing still."
Is averted the strike? no. Since you are in the BVG-Central pretty sure: "We are ready to talk, but in the other hand, it just goes haywire." In some cases the requirements are so high, that would only be offset via price increases.daily mirror people for Free order
What is different from the previous BVG strike? Everything. With the first BVG strike on may 15. In February it had begun - but he is not. The first Time was the only strike in the morning and in the morning; the school children, for example, had to be in the morning, brought to class, which was on the way to work is relatively easy for the parents. And on 14. March went on strike, only the bus driver, however, all day long. Especially in the edge of the city was affected.
Drives anyway? Yes, even buses - and Yes, even the yellow of the BVG. As with the previous strikes, the subcontractors that operate with their buses, usually on the outskirts of the city. According to the BVG, these bus routes will drive: 106, 161, 162, 163, 168, 175, 179, 218, 234, 263, 275, 284, 320, 322, 334, 341, 349, 363, 365, 371, 373, 380, 399. The following lines with slight limitations: 112, 140, 184, 283, 370 and 893. The line 390 is only in the early hours of the morning regularly.
all of this Is? no, the surrounding area buses to the city and thus open up all districts. Here are three examples: lines 638, 671 and 697 to. The 638er about comes from Potsdam and in Berlin-Kladow, military road, Ziegelhof, Wilhelm and Spandau S-Bahn station.
the BVG ferry lines Are in operation? Yes, the captain is not a BVG employee, but only in their order. Means: districts such as Kladow in Berlin-Spandau, which are only accessible with the Bus, and thus would be cut off, are connected with the BVG Boot to the network on the other side of the Havel and the Wannsee S-Bahn station is located.
Was this actually? A BVG strike a full working day - a long time ago. In 2012, the strike lasted a whopping 15 hours, however, on a Saturday. In may 2008, but there was a strike that had it all: It is the longest industrial dispute in the history of the BVG ("a twelve-day full strike") and, as the daily mirror called it, "by far the dumbest strike of the BVG-history". The salary jump was rather so-so. At that time, shopping centers were in the castle street and even a kind of bus line, so that customers came into the shop.
Departs from the S-Bahn? Yes, and you will need to have the city exit - the first Time the S-Bahn has managed it well. "All available operating reserves to be used", - stated in the S-Bahn headquarters. Approximately 80 additional train rides are offered on the S-Bahn line S5 between mahlsdorf and Warschauer Straße (Friedrichshain) ("between 5 and 18 o'clock"). But: "Due to the short-term nature of the amplifier can not be displayed in the trips on the S5 in the electronic timetable." But it is tricky, because: "Due to the announcement of the strikes shortly before a weekend with a lot of construction sites, for example, in the S-Bahn-Werkstatt in Berlin-Wannsee, the vehicle and personnel deployment for the Assembly to be a particular challenge for the S-workers." And also the have to come only once to the station. "We are all out there, what is possible - more is not possible, because of the construction site, spring begins and we don't have a a space for more trains", we hear in the Headquarters of the S-Bahn.
Driving the regional train? Yes. A not to be underestimated factor in the transport - there are now 22 (!) Regional train stations in the city. Since many of the routes, you can well be bridged. However, the trains in the rush hour with commuters are well filled. Anyone who can, moves anti-cyclically, so a little later.More about
