Train services to Sweden remain disrupted as strike continues

Delays expected, leave early warns DSB

An ongoing strike by railway employees at Veolia in Sweden will once again lead to disrupted services in the Øresund region today. Railway operator DSB said it was unclear how long the strike will drag on.

Train services across the Øresund Bridge will be most particularly affected, so travellers to Malmö are advised to catch the replacement bus service running between Copenhagen Airport and the Swedish town of Hyllie, just outside of Malmö. From there, they should catch a local Swedish pågatog to get all the way into town, or head in the opposite direction if they are heading to the airport.

S trains in Denmark are running according to a normal schedule, and trains between Copenhagen Airport and Central Station are running every 20 minutes. 

The strike is expected to affect 76,000 passenger per day, and DSB has urged travellers to give themselves plenty of time to get to their destination.
