New timetable, more trains
December 16, 2008 Leave a Comment
The new Dutch railway timetable came into force on Sunday. The number of trains travelling throughout the country will increase by three percent. There will also be more trains per hour in several areas. This will happen in the Randstad (the urban conglomeration in the west of the country, comprising cities such as Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam).
There will also be more trains in the Twente region – in the east of the country – where, during the week, six trains an hour will travel between Almelo, Hengelo and Enschede.
The number of trains between Arnhem and Nijmegen will increase to eight an hour. However, the direct connection between Arnhem and The Hague will end, a change the travellers’ association Rover has said it is extremely unhappy about.
