From Wednesday, 12. august once again the requirement that passengers must have pladsbillet, if they run with the DSB's intercity or intercity lightning.
It confirms Tony Bispeskov, information services manager, DSB, to Ekstra Bladet.
- We get it implemented from Wednesday of next week. We are now in the process of updating our systems and information to passengers, so that from Wednesday will be possible to get free pladsbillet, he says.
It happens after the transport minister Benny Engelbrecht (S) today demanded pladsbilletten back.
- It is the case that the Danish medicines agency has recommended that people do not stand up in the trains on the long trips so that you can keep a safe distance. Therefore, I have asked the DSB to reinstate the requirement on the long trips, he says to Ritzau.
currently, DSB is not going to introduce mundbind for passengers and staff on the nationwide traffic, it sounds to Ekstra Bladet.
- But we are constantly the recommendation from the health authorities. And it is clear that if the time comes that it becomes a requirement, then we follow it. Then follows the dialogue with the national board of health, says Tony Bispeskov.
