“The RATP invites you to limit your trips as much as possible”. You’ve been warned. This Friday September 13, 2019, because of a major RATP (Autonomous Operator of Parisian Transportation) strike, the traffic will be highly disrupted for the Parisian metro, the RERs A and B. Discover the metro and RER traffic forecast.
If you planned to ride the metro or the RERs A and B, as well as buses in Paris this Friday September 13, 2019, be far-sighted. Because of a call for strike launched at the RATP in order to denounce the reform of pensions, the traffic will be highly disrupted on the whole network.
Announced as one of the most followed strike movements of these past years, this September 13, 2019 will likely be difficult for all RATP network users. The RATP recommends you all to limit your trips as much as possible during this day.
The strike – that will start this Thursday September 12 at 6 p.m. and end on Saturday September 14 at 7 a.m. – will have consequences on all the metro lines. The lines 1 and 14 – automatically managed – will be running but at a slower pace…
As for the rest, some metro lines will be totally stopped including lines 2, 3, 3bis, 5, 6, 7bis, 10, 11, 12 and 13.
As for RER lines A and B, the service will be very limited. Allow 1 train out of 3, only during peak time for the RER A and 1 train out of 5 only during peak time for the RER B.
Yet, no disruption has been announced on the SNCF (the French National Railway Company) network. Consequences? RERs C, D and E as well as Transiliens are expected to run as usual.
