Another slight improvement in transport traffic is planned for this Thursday, the third consecutive day of strike against the pension reform. The RATP warns, however, that traffic will remain disrupted in the Paris metro and the RER.
The RER B line will be particularly impacted, but traffic should be almost normal on the RER A (on average 3 out of 4 trains) and normal on the bus and tram networks.
Lines 3, 8, 10 and 13 very disrupted
The RER B will run on average up to one train out of two during peak hours and two trains out of three during off-peak hours. The interconnection between the southern portion of the line, operated by RATP, and the northern portion, managed by SNCF, will be interrupted at Gare du Nord.
In the metro, in addition to automated lines 1 and 14 which will operate normally, traffic will be normal or almost normal in the morning at least on lines 2, 4, 6, 9 and 11. Lines 3, 8, 10 and 13 will remain very disrupted.
On Friday, public transport traffic is expected to improve further, according to RATP. It should remain very disrupted on the RER B and disrupted on "only a few metro lines". It will be almost normal on the RER A and normal on the bus and tram networks.
"Strongly disrupted" circulation of SNCF trains
On the SNCF side, train traffic will remain "strongly disrupted" Thursday, said the management of the SNCF Wednesday. One TGV Inoui and one Ouigo in three should circulate, as well as two TER out of five on average, depending on the region. Traffic will also remain disrupted on Friday.
