Public transport strike! Baptism by fire for the EMS

This week’s strike by public sector employees caused the entire subway system in Munich to grind to a halt. Drivers for numerous tram lines were also on strike. Thousands of commuters and students were affected. “Strike: Currently no subway service”, could be seen on displays at subway platforms all around Munich. What seems like a nightmare for control center employees was actually a baptism by fire for the MVG’s new EMS system, which was developed by Munich-based MENTZ GmbH.
