Significant rail disruptions (delays and cancelations) are being reported across France as of the morning (local time) on Friday, October 18, due to an ongoing strike by employees of the national rail operator SNCF. Regional train service in the Hauts-de-France, Pays de la Loire, Occitanie, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Grand-Est, Normandie, Centre Val-de-Loire, Bretagne, and Ile-de-France areas are particularly affected.
An increased demand for alternative transport and longer travel times are expected in the coming hours. Additional information can be found on the SNCF website here.
Individuals are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm rail reservations, anticipate public transportation disruptions, and plan alternative modes of transportation.
