Start of continued Annual Timetable 2020 – a list of the main changes

The summer holiday is almost over and the schools are opening up again. On 31 August, HTM's summer timetable will change to the Annual Timetable 2020. From 31 August, HTM will run more trams and buses during the day and somewhat fewer during the rush hours. This gives room to travel more often outside the rush hour as well.

HTM is inviting everyone to use the bus or tram to travel to the city, the beach or for a day out, because there is room for all this. This change will last for three months. From the results of a passenger survey, we will decide whether we will continue this for the Annual Timetable 2021.

Tram changes as of 31 August

  • HTM is working on the tracks and stops on the route of tram 1 in the centre of The Hague and Scheveningen. Because of this, the route of tram 1 will be shortened from Delft Tanthof to The Hague city centre. A replacement bus 31 runs between The Hague Central Station and Scheveningen.
