Munich/Hof (dpa/lby) - Because many Länderbahn employees are on vacation or have a corona infection, numerous Alex trains between Munich and Hof will be canceled from Monday. “The Corona summer wave in combination with the upcoming holiday season is hitting us with full force,” said the managing director of the Länderbahn, Wolfgang Pollety, on Thursday. With great effort and with the help of many colleagues from the transport service, traffic has been maintained in the past few days. This cannot be implemented in the long term. Therefore, starting next week, up to ten connections a day would have to be at least partially canceled.
Most of the non-moving trains are to be replaced by buses. In addition, the company refers to the Oberpfalzbahn for the section between Regensburg and Hof, between Regensburg and Munich the RE22 and the S1 could be alternatives. The thinned timetable should be valid until the end of August.
