In the context of the Decree on continuity of services, De Lijn will provide an adjusted timetable.

The common trade union front is organizing a general day of action on Wednesday 9 November. The action is not directed against De Lijn, even though De Lijn personnel participate in it. De Lijn certainly regrets the inconvenience this will entail for its bus and tram passengers.

The trade union front wants to send another signal to the government for more purchasing power. The action day will take place on Wednesday 9 November. This will cause hindrance to bus and tram services throughout Flanders. The extent of the impact on service provision and where it will be felt most is not yet known.

In the context of the Decree on continuity of services, De Lijn will provide an adjusted timetable. This is composed on the basis of the drivers willing to work. In the course of Monday evening 7 November, this adjusted timetable will be announced, and therefore also the extent of the nuisance

From Monday evening 7 November, the route planner will show, both on the website and in the app, all journeys that will run on Wednesday 9 November. Trips that are not running are not shown. The route planner always shows the most recent situation and can therefore still change slightly after Monday, e.g. due to last-minute illness reports from drivers.
