The next BVG strike by Verdi - this time on Thursday. It starts with the start of the operation in the LOB, and takes only a couple of hours, but all day. Here is the Service we continue to complement in the course of the day.
what is the reaction of the LPP? No metro? No Tram? There is not a strike. This time, the BVG-bus transportation is paralyzed and the edge of the city of Berlin, where commuters are not so easy to the next station, and thus not to come into the office and children are also not in the school. "Our passengers have to adjust after the announcement, unfortunately, significant limitations in transport", - stated in the first opinion from the BVG Headquarters. "According to the announcement of the Union of bus and coach transport will be on strike on Thursday of the start of operation (approximately 3:30 PM) till 22 o'clock."
What are the consequences for the BVG-bus? The impact will be enormous, because the whole city is not reaching parts difficult, if not impossible. "We assume that most of the buses are at a standstill and the traffic will be after the termination of the Strike a few hours of irregular." The normal traffic will take place only on Friday.
What is BVG bus lines? On the outskirts of the city are often Sub-contractors on behalf of the BVG. Means: you are driving, as during the last strike also. "The following of subcontractors-powered bus will be driving during the Strikes expected to complete: 106, 161, 162, 163, 168, 175, 179, 218, 234, 263, 275, 284, 320, 322, 334, 341, 349, 363, 365, 371, 373, 380, 390, 399. The following lines with slight limitations: 112, 140, 184, 283, 370 and 893."
there Are alternative bus routes? On the outskirts of the city, also lines from the surrounding areas to the next S - and regional train station often. For example, the line 638 from Potsdam across the Spandau city hall. These lines are normally in use and are a rewarding Alternative.
To the S-Bahn and regional rail? Yes. If additional trains are to be used, was on Wednesday morning is still not known. The previous BVG strike was organized by S-Bahn 60 additional trips. The S-Bahn got a lot of praise last Time they held thanks to the reliable work of the cycle and thus the occupation of transport in an upright position. Many sites - for example, on the line S7 between Westkreuz and Potsdam ("replacement service") - start only after the BVG strike on Thursday, 22 am.
the airport Tegel Is easy to reach? , No subway, no BVG-Bus, no tram ... on Wednesday morning: no, the airport TXL will only be by car or Taxi. Whether or not a Shuttle-Service, was on Wednesday morning, is not known. And remember: The bus number of Rudow, Schönefeld airport does not drive the S - and regional train (however, not Rudow).
To the BVG ferries? Yes. But they are only for single districts is a good Alternative. The District of Kladow (16,000 inhabitants) is only accessible by Bus. The people there can, however, take advantage of the BVG-ferry across the Wannsee and from there take the S-Bahn to get in.
you Can reserve taxis? 8000 Taxis in Berlin, of which 6500 are organized in the same call center. Binding (!) Pre-orders are not possible. Last Time, it was said: "If you imagine a day like this – then it is simply not possible to guarantee a car." The experience has shown that in the early hours of the morning, even on the darkest edge of town, already Taxi-driver to customer waited - but the big crowds failed to materialize.
children in the school? in Principle, education is compulsory. "In General, it should be the students, is reasonable, to take care of in a timely manner to other ways to get to school," had a country of parents spokesman for Norman said Heise during the last strike. Since the preparation time was quite long. Nevertheless, there could be cases in which remote schools will not be achieved without the LPP. It was, according to the school act, to a leave of absence to students afterwards for an important reason, if this reason was known. Students absent without excuse, you have to expect that the day will be recorded as unjustified day of absence on the certificate.
a cheaper tip? Many went among neighbors and friends in the car for the night, there are in all 96 districts, neighborhood to neighborhood, in a myriad of Internet groups, neighbourhood help. "Anyone who drives in the morning to 5 o'clock to the station?" - "I'll take you."
And how is the weather? The last Time Berlin was lucky. It was fresh, but dry - and many could walk or Bicycle to change trains. Views Thursday: It's going to rain.
