A strike of Germany’s train drivers’ union is in full swing, with around two-thirds of long-distance trains cancelled. The head of Germany’s national rail service, Deutsche Bahn, is said to have an idea for a compromise, DW reported. For many commuters and travelers in Germany, Wednesday marks the second full day of strikes that have affected passenger trains operated by Deutsche Bahn. According to a statement on the Deutsche Bahn website, around two-thirds of all long-distance trains have been cancelled and one-third of regional trains. Deutsche Bahn has implemented an alternative schedule and is encouraging its customers to use the trains that are running.
