New 2020 train timetable

With some 7,000 kilometres of track criss-crossing the country, creating a new timetable is tricky business.  In December the 2020 train timetable will go into operation bringing with it more trains on several routes including more trains between Haarlem and Zandvoort, just in time for return of the Grand Prix Formula 1.

It’s not just more trains between Amersfoort and Utrecht, and Dordrecht and Eindhoven, but also a new planning system that will make better use of the existing track network. Freight trains will be longer to increase efficiency. What’s more, the new system will give greater accuracy with planning to within seconds instead of the current minutes.
