Arriva has been working on recruitment campaigns for some time now.

Transport company Arriva will be forced to restrict the timetable for buses in Limburg. The transport company previously announced that it would also use fewer trains in Groningen in the coming period due to absenteeism among staff. Arriva has decided in consultation with the province of Limburg to start a so-called spring timetable for the buses, reports 1Limburg

In practice, this comes down to a holiday timetable with the addition of extra lines and/or journeys. The modified timetable for buses in Limburg will come into effect on 8 May and will apply until the summer holidays. The transport company and the Province of Limburg were faced with a dilemma, because it is not feasible to recruit new staff in the short term. According to the deputy for mobility, there were two choices. 

The first was to maintain timetables with the risk of daily ride cancellations. The other choice was to limit the timetables, so that travelers can assume that the planned bus ride will go ahead. Arriva has been engaged in recruitment campaigns for some time to find new bus drivers and train drivers. The other regional carriers such as Connexxion and Keolis currently do not have a changed timetable due to absenteeism due to illness.

commemoration of the dead

As in previous years, Arriva trains and buses will stop for two minutes at 4 p.m. on May 20.00 during the National Remembrance Day. Bus drivers and train drivers will stop the vehicle in a safe place if possible. At the National Remembrance Day, all victims of war since the outbreak of the Second World War are commemorated throughout the country by means of a two-minute silence. Out of respect for this, where possible, all buses and trains of Arriva are also stopped from 20.00:20.02 to XNUMX:XNUMX.
