Bus strike in Oslo and Viken


All city and regional buses have gone on strike. No buses run in Oslo and formerly Akershus.

The public transport company Ruter encourages its passengers to choose alternative modes of transport, or not to travel. No extra capacity will be deployed, which is in line with the rules for a legal labor dispute.

Ruter warns that their travel planner app is not up to date, and the company points out that there may be many travelers by tram, subway, train and boat, which could mean that Ruter can not arrange for passengers to keep recommended distance.

– Do not travel unless you have to, keep the recommended distance and use a bandage according to the recommendations of the health authorities, Ruter writes in a press release.

School shuttles and special shuttles with minibus and taxi are also affected to some extent by the strike.

The public transport company further states that the travel guarantee does not apply in the event of a strike.

Ruter is the largest public transport company affected by the strike, but also Brakar and Østfold public transport are affected.(Terms)Copyright Dagens Næringsliv AS and / or our suppliers.
