Easter holiday timetable changes
During the Easter holiday the timetables for buses, trams, and trolleybuses will change. The first modifications will take effect already on Maundy Thursday (14th of April).
Rules of the urban transport operation will change from the 14th till 19th of April. On the 14th, 15th, and 19th of April (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Tuesday after Easter Monday, respectively) timetables for working days will be in force. At the same time it is worth having in mind, that on lines, for which there are various timetable types for working days, it is necessary to look at a non-school or non-holiday variant.
On the 16th of April (Holy Saturday) timetables for Saturday will be in force. However, there will be exceptions for certain lines. One of them is that by a part of buses (26, 137, 232, 250, 515, and 750) will omit stops situated in the area of shopping malls. This limitation will be introduced in the afternoon hours.
On the 17th (Easter Sunday) and 18th of April (Easter Monday) timetables for Sundays and holidays will be in force, but also in this case there will be some deviations. The suspension of certain bus (26, 60, 61, 71, 88, 90, 116, 140, 142, 154, 200, 220, 230, 232, 250, 515, 662, 676, 688, 693, 721, 722, 750, 835, 959, and 1N) and tram (0, 23, and 38) lines is the most important.
The Metropolitan Transport Authority (ZTM) implements such changes a few times a year - on holidays and on long weekends. In such periods the number of passengers is smaller, so the reduction of connections frequency is economically justified. Similar changes should be expected for the May Day period and in mid-June (Corpus Christi).
All detailed information on the urban transport operation in the holiday period is available on the ZTM website, in the Messages tab.
