NS made changes to its policy for regional timetable adjustments so that it can be more flexible in dealing with local snowfall. This should mean a reduction in train cancellations on snowy days, the rail company pledged in comments to the Telegraaf.

Previously, changes to regional timetables had to be made at least 12 hours in advance and applied to a whole section of a day. Now changes must be made at least four hours an advance, and apply for at least two hours.

After months of puzzling and work, ProRail announced its new train timetable for 2020. The main change is that more trains will run next year, also outside the Randstad. According to the rail manager, a new planning system means that the space on the track can be used even more efficiently next year, NOS reports.

Dutch rail company NS implemented its new timetable for 2019 on Sunday. While most train travelers will still be able to catch their regular train at the usual time, there are some major changes in the new timetable. Here follows a summary of the biggest changes, according to newspaper AD.

NS and ProRail are expanding their experiment with running a train every 10 minutes between Amsterdam, Utrecht, Den Bosch and Eindhoven to seven days a week from December. The rail companies started out by testing this 10 minute train schedule only on Wednesdays, and the first results were very positive, ANP reports.
