The new Dutch railway schedule begins Sunday with more trains running throughout the country.

AMSTERDAM - The new Dutch railway timetable began on Sunday. The number of trains travelling throughout the country will increase by three percent. There will also be more trains per hour in several areas.

The increase will take place in the Randstad, the urban conglomeration in the west of the country, including the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam.

More trains will run in the eastern Twente region where, during the week, six trains an hour will travel between Almelo, Hengelo and Enschede.

The number of trains between Arnhem and Nijmegen will increase to eight an hour.

However, the direct connection will end between Arnhem and The Hague, a change the travellers' association Rover said it is unhappy about.
