Strike on Monday: BRB and RVO affected - school expects "chaos"


Due to a nationwide warning strike, local public transport is also expected to stand still in the Miesbach district on Monday. This also has an impact on student transport.

Due to a nationwide warning strike, local public transport is also expected to stand still in the Miesbach district on Monday.

This also has an impact on student transport.


– The transport department in the district office assumes that, in addition to RVO GmbH, private transport companies will also join the strike, district office spokeswoman Sabine Kirchmair said when asked.

There are a total of 3,068 students in the district who are entitled to promotion to secondary schools.

Of these, 1880 students are driven by buses from the RVO and its subcontractors.

Another 864 students have tickets for the BRB.

Elementary/Middle School

As the director of the elementary and middle school in Hausham, Markus Rewitzer, said, only a few students come to his school by train because the network of elementary and middle schools is densely woven.

"Unlike in secondary schools, where the students are carted across the district." Parents were asked to get organized early on.

The school bus is provided by the private company Marx: "We asked there and were told that the buses were running." Rewitzer, however, expects delays: "Because everyone is on the street." Buses connected, roughly in the direction of Müller am Baum.


The Fachoberschule (FOS) Holzkirchen, with its large catchment area, is switching completely to distance learning on Monday.

Headmaster Michael Hüttl explained: "We as a school and our students can do it technically." Most recently, there were trial online days in the FOS, where such a scenario was tested.

Some homework that should have taken place on Monday has been postponed.

High school

"On Monday we will have the big chaos in front of the school building," says the head of the Tegernsee high school, Werner Oberholzner.

An estimated 90 percent of the students depend on the train or bus.

"That's why we expect a large number of parents' taxis." On top of that, bad weather has been announced.

"You can't say: Come by bike." Parents and students were informed about the strike via the weekly newsletter.

Schoolwork or tests scheduled for Monday would be postponed.

“That entails a rat tail of problems because we don’t have unlimited appointments.” Distance learning is not planned.

The Gymnasium Holzkirchen handles exams more strictly.

As headmaster Axel Kisters announced, schoolwork is scheduled for Monday.

They could only be postponed from the first hour to a subsequent hour.

"Like employers, we expect everyone to find an alternative way to get there at an early stage and, if possible, to carpool."

There are no general directives for dealing with exams at the Miesbach Gymnasium: "This is regulated individually, just like in the case of illness," says Wolfgang Thoma, a member of the school management team.

The parents have been informed and assume that they will organize themselves.

A significant number of students use public transport.

"Perhaps negotiations will still take place by Monday and there won't be a strike at all," hopes Thoma.

The information on the extent of the strike is not that clear.

RVO buses

In fact, the RVO had not given any information on the impact on individual lines.

He only sent a general letter to the district office, which sent it to the schools.

So it's no wonder that the phone at the RVO branch in Tegernsee hardly stood still before the weekend: Many parents asked about the bus service on Monday.

When asked, one employee said that many of his colleagues were unionized.

Nobody can predict how high the participation in the strike will be.

Forecasts as to which lines would be served could not be made either.

Spokeswoman Sandra Schäfer stated in general: “The railway and transport union (EVG) has announced a full-day and nationwide warning strike for Monday, March 27th.

This will result in "massive restrictions on bus traffic" in the entire traffic area.

Passengers should use alternatives.

BRB trains

The BRB is even clearer in a statement.

As of Friday, she expects that “no train traffic will be possible” on Monday morning.

"That's why we are also appealing to the schools to switch to homeschooling and to refrain from using public transport." Passengers should find out about the current status at

Recently, staff at the hospital in Agatharied also went on strike.
