New Train Schedule


A million travelers will be confronted with the new NS train schedule today. The new schedule went into effect Dec 10th.

So far this morning there has been no incidents and the busiest train station in The Netherlands, Utrecht, reports “business as usual”. There are no reports of chaos.

Passengers are taking a bit longer reading the boards to check out the schedule and there is more NS personnel to assist and answer questions.

Some late departures were reported in several cities. (

*added: Reports came in later of hundreds of complaints, mostly involving the poor coordination of trains and local city busses.

  1. Dutch people are noted for their organisation and efficiency.

    Perhaps measures were not sufficient and the new schedules were not studied conveniently, which is abnormal in the case of the Netherlands.
