Amsterdam to Disneyland Paris trains readied; Lille route scrapped
Transit companies Thalys and NS are working on a direct train route between Amsterdam Centraal and Disneyland Paris and Charles de Gaulle Airport. They hope to launch these routes in April next year. In return, the route between Amsterdam and Lille will be scrapped, AT5 reports.
How long the journey between Amsterdam and Paris will take, is not yet clear. Though a train ride of between 3.5 and 4 hours is expected. Thalys and NS believe that these new destinations "offer a considerable advantage for travelers". From the station at Disneyland there are good transfer possibilities for other high-speed trains further into France.
The companies decided to scrap the route to Lille, because of disappointing passenger numbers, according to the broadcaster.
