U-OV and Syntus suspend night buses until further notice

Last updated 2 weeks ago by Michael Darmanin

The government recently announced additional measures to combat the corona virus as cases rise across the country. As part of these measures, hospitality establishments must close by 1 a.m. Due to this, Utrecht bus companies U-OV and Syntus have temporarily halted night buses.

U-OV suspends night buses until further notice

U-OV has announced night buses are temporarily suspended until further notice. Buses 412, 428, 441, 447, 452, 474 and 495 will no longer be running overnight. The last U-OV buses will leave the city center between midnight and 1 a.m.

Syntus suspends night buses to Amersfoort, Utrecht and Amsterdam

Syntus has also announced the temporary termination of their night buses. Syntus night buses typically run only on Friday and Saturday nights to bring visitors home from entertainment venues in the city of Utrecht. Due to the mandatory closure of hospitality venues at 1 a.m. there is no need for these lines to currently run. The last Syntus buses will leave from the city of Utrecht around 1 a.m. until further notice.

Alternative forms of transportation

Need to travel after 1 a.m.? There are still options for you to get home. NS runs night trains in some regions every night and in other regions on the weekend. Depending on where you need to go, check if a train is running at the time you need it.

Of course buses and trains are friendlier on your wallet but if you need to get home, check the taxi options to your city. Taxis in Utrecht are available 24/7 and there are several taxi ranks where taxis are usually always waiting. You can check the taxi rank locations throughout the city on the Visit Utrecht website.

No matter how and when you decide to travel, make sure to wear your face mask when using public transport and keep 1.5m distance where possible.
