In response to a decreased demand caused by recent school closures and a growing number of home office workers, the Munich S-Bahn has made some adjustments to their timetable.

You can read more details on the official website here, but here is a summary of what to expect.

Firstly, the so-called Taktverstärker (additional trains meant to help ease traffic during peak periods) will be cancelled on lines S2, S3, S4, S8 from Monday, March 16, 2020 onwards. For those seeking more precise info/times, we’ll summarize them below:
