Sunday . Number 17 tram in Zurich discontinued..

Such a typical example for Zurich and the ZVV that they take away this tram. Its used by so many people. And on a Sunday even more. Especially in summer.

Tram 17 is well-known as the Jelmoli Express in Zurich. It's a piece of history.

I am really sorry for you. It must be awful to live under a bridge.

But no-one needs to do that in Zurich - am happy to provide you with all the links available for people just like you. And there are really qualified members here that are experienced in this situation. Just let us know.

Well I did not realize that on Sunday the 13 tram will take over from the 17 going to Werdhölzli.

Thats good to know! I'm sure many here are relieved to know that.

Actually, although I agree that there should have been an informative link in the opening post, I don't think it's a non-story.

Timetable changes affect many people, and they need to know, even or especially if one route takes on part of the service of another.

Also: there are many people looking for jobs, and such a severe measure is one way to prove the point that the VBZ staff are already taking strain and, hopefully, to save their health and to encourage others to apply. VBZ provides on-the-job training.

If you put it that way yes, I agree, but it looked like a random thread... OP should have formulated his post much more clearly.

Yes, he should have.

Also, the ZVV should have put a note on the PDF schedule that on Sundays and holidays, one can take Tram 13 instead. If one only downloads the timetable and doesn't read news articles, it looks like the tram is totally cancelled and there aren't alternatives.
