Even after the warning strike has been cancelled, Deutsche Bahn is allowing travellers to use the tickets they have already purchased for Monday and Tuesday on Sunday. "Our goodwill arrangement remains in place," the group announced online. If trains booked for Monday or Tuesday are cancelled, the usual passenger rights also apply - these allow, among other things, to make up for the journey later.

Not all trains will run

However, since the railway expects very full trains from Wednesday to the weekend in view of the Ascension Day holiday on Thursday (18 May), it advises to bring forward the journeys.

On Saturday, Deutsche Bahn had already indicated that not all trains would be able to run in the coming days, despite the cancellation of the warning strike. "DB is facing the great challenge of rescheduling around 50,000 train journeys as well as the associated shift and deployment schedules," it said.

The warning strike was called off on Saturday as part of a settlement reached in court between Deutsche Bahn and the railway and transport union EVG. Both sides also agreed to continue collective bargaining swiftly.
