2024 timetable: 1,800 additional trains

When the 2024 timetable takes effect, NS will run 1,800 additional trains per week. The new timetable is more aligned with the new travel behaviour of passengers since COVID-19. For instance, there are now fewer train passengers on Fridays, while off-peak and weekend passenger numbers are already back at pre-COVID-19 levels. Tuesdays and Thursdays have become busy commuter days. NS expects to be able to serve more passengers with this timetable.
Frequencies between major cities have returned to four Intercity trains per hour, including on weekends and during off-peak hours. In addition, we have increased the number of connections on popular routes. For example, the Intercity direct service on the high-speed line between Breda and Amsterdam is back. At quiet times, NS runs fewer Sprinters on a number of routes.
