Strike action planned for Thursday and Friday by Verdi

The trade union Verdi has announced a strike at BVG for Thursday, February 29 to Friday, March 1 as part of nationwide strike actions. The strike will last from 3 AM on Thursday until 2 PM on Friday. U-Bahn, Tram and most Bus services will not run during this period.

The following lines will run despite the strike

Lines and services operated by other companies on behalf of BVG are not affected by the strike. This applies to BVG Muva and all ferry services (F10, F11, F12).

The following bus lines run: 106, 114, 118, 124, 133, 161, 168, 175, 179, 184, 204, 218, 234, 275, 316, 318, 320, 326, 334, 349, 363, 380, N12, N23, N35, N39, N52, N61, N62, N68, N69, N84, N91, N95, N97. Lines M36 and 124 run with restricted service. For these lines, please check the BVG apps or on if the trip is currently displayed with real-time information.

Restrictions in the surrounding area

Especially on March 1, significant disruptions are expected in the surrounding area. Verdi’s strike actions include 12 public transport companies in Brandenburg all day on Friday. The BVG operates lines that connect Berlin with the surrounding area in cooperation with transport companies from the respective districts. As a result, some lines will still be affected by BVG service disruptions even after the end of the strike.

Some public transport companies in Brandenburg will also be on strike all day on February 28 and 29.

You can find more information on the VBB Website.
