Special basic timetable

NS and ProRail have implemented measures to ensure that travellers who have no other option but to travel by train, such as those in essential professions, can rely on predictable and reliable rail service. NS will therefore run according to a special basic railway timetable until normal service resumes on 2 June.


This means that two trains per hour in all directions will be running from every station in the Netherlands. For stations from which one train usually departs per hour, this will remain in effect. In addition, at least 1 Intercity per hour will stop at every station in the Netherlands that is normally served by Intercity trains.

We advise everyone to consult the NS Travel Planner or the NS app for the most up-to-date information.

Urgent advice

Please note! Only take the train if it's strictly necessary! Please also keep at least 1.5 metres away from each other at the station and while boarding and disembarking.
