A full-day strike will stop all Trenord services on Sunday 16 December, the regional transport network with a hub at Milano-Cadorna station, has announced.
And because the stoppage falls on a non-working day, there will be no “guaranteed times” which the law requires for commuters on weekdays.
The strike may also cause delays on the following day, since overnight preparations will not be fully completed, Trenord warns.
The current delays which have been affecting services since Monday, caused by problems with the new computer system which manages staff shifts, are being tackled and should be resolved soon, the company added. Irate passengers have been exchanging real-time information on these delays on the Twitter account #TrenordVictims.
Meanwhile, the new winter timetable has come into effect, with 62 new routes added, prolongation of the timetable of another 84 routes, and the extension of line S9 to Seregno, which will now continue on to Saronno. The new timetables for all lines are available for download from the Trenord site, and information is also available (in Italian) on the free-phone number 800 500 005.
