Event

Further train disruptions are expected across France on Sunday, October 20, due to an ongoing strike by employees of the national rail operator SNCF. The TGV rail service in the east and north of the country has largely resumed, but service to the west and southeast regions is still significantly disrupted. The SNCF has announced limited service on the Paris-Limoges-Toulouse and Paris-Clermont-Ferrand lines, as well as no service on the night trains. Regional train service is also significantly disrupted, operating at approximately 50 percent as of 08:05 (local time) on Sunday.

Service on the Paris-region RER B line is disrupted between Gare du Nord and Mitry Claye, as well as to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG).

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.
