General Strike at Deutsche Bahn AG on 22/23 April 2015

The German engine drivers’ labour union (Gewerkschaft Deutscher Lokomotivführer GDL) has announced a general strike at Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG). Engine drivers and train conductors have been called out on strike against public transport from Wednesday, April 22 at 2:00 a.m. until Thursday, April 23 at 9:00 p.m. This affects long-distance trains, regional trains, and S-Bahn trains in the RMV area.

Possible affected train lines and current information:
The following train lines in the RMV area are serviced by the DB AG, which is why delays and cancellations are possible. Current information about the individual train lines in Hesse can be obtained by visiting (website is only available in German).

S-Bahn train lines S1 to S9
RMV train line 20 (Taunusbahn)
Likely affected are only DB trains, but not those of the train operator Vectus.
RMV train line 25 (Lahntalbahn)
Likely are only RegionalExpress-Züge (RE), which are operated by DB AG, but not RegionalBahnen (RB), which are run by Hessische Landesbahn (HLB).
RMV train line 30 (Main-Weser-Bahn)
Likely affected are only DB trains, but not those of the Hessische Landesbahn (HLB).
RMV train line 30/33 (Gießen – Nidderau – Hanau)
