NMBS has, based on the number of people that want to work tomorrow, drawn up a modified reduced timetable. This will allow passengers the luxury of knowing in advance whether trains are running on their line. However, even this isn’t 100% certain as it depends on how many key staff actually turn up for work.
Passengers are advised to check the NMBS’ Online Route Planner regularly. The best thing to do is to check just before leaving for the station as things could change at the last minute.

During the rush hours it expected that there will be IC trains between major towns and cities and L and S services that stop at most if not every station en route. Outside the rush hour only IC services will operate. It is likely that the disruption will be worse in Wallonia that in Flanders.
