U-Bahn replaced with buses next week

Due to work taking place on the line, the U-Bahn U3 will be replaced with buses next week.

From Monday, 24th April until Sunday, 30th April (2017) work is being carried out on the crossing at the Zimmersmühlenweg.  As a result the U3 will not be running between Niederursel and Hohemark.

Instead, a replacement bus service will be running with stops near to the U-Bahn stops.  However after Weißkirchen-Ost the bus will travel to Riedberg and the terminus of the U8 line, from where it will be possible to travel to Niederursel and onwards to Frankfurt.

The bus takes longer to complete the journey than the U-Bahn normally does, so it may be necessary to travel earlier in order to make connections with the S-Bahn in Oberursel.
