In a statement released last Thursday, the STIB said it expected its network to come to a complete halt next Monday, due to the national strike led by the Trade Union Front. On the third day of rotating strikes, last Monday, rail and road traffic had already been severely disrupted, in Brussels.
In so far as possible, and depending on its staff’s availability, the public transportation company hopes to be able to run its vehicles on main lines. The STIB nevertheless advises its customers to seek alternative transport solutions for that day,
Travellers will be informed of any disruptions to the network via several means of communication, on Monday morning.
On Thursday, De Lijn announced that, in Flanders, no bus or tram would be running either.
