Transport Strike Paralyzes German Passenger Trains

BERLIN – The strike launched by the German train drivers’ union went into effect early Tuesday morning for passenger trains, leaving two-thirds of long-distance trains paralyzed, as well as one-third of commuter trains.

Deutsche Bahn, the largest railway company in the country, provided the data at the beginning of the strike on Tuesday.

The strike particularly affected Berlin, Frankfurt, Halle and Mannheim, according to several reports.

Commercial transport of goods came to a halt on Monday afternoon, while passenger trains had a half-day leeway until midnight on Monday.

Both services will be suspended until Sunday morning, the longest strike in German rail history, while estimates suggest that the strike could cost the industry around 500 million euros (around $554 million).
