Public transport workers are on strike in Rotterdam on Thursday, bringing bus, metro and tram services to a halt.
Randstad light rail services have also been stopped because of the dispute over government plans to cut €120m from local councils’ public transport budgets.
Ministers also want Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam to put their public transport services out to tender.
Services in Rotterdam will resume around 04.00 hours on Friday.
