Rail Strike Situation
Current situation (Thursday, November 22nd, 10am): No strikes are currently planned.
Deutsche Bahn has made a new offer to train drivers' union GDL, who is considering whether to recommend acceptance. Their decision will taken by Monday next week (November 26th) which means no strikes are likely before then.
Other transport services
Other local transport services not run by Deutsche Bahn (U-Bahn, buses, trams etc.) are not affected by any rail strikes, although in the event of a strike they will be busier than usual. In Berlin the BVG does try to run longer U-Bahn trains and operate more buses / trams but cannot guarantee capacity increases at short notice.
