Transport is disrupted by strikes at the SNCF in New Aquitaine and at the RATP in Ile-de-France, this Friday. The disturbances are expected to be significant. La Dépêche will help you see things more clearly.
This is bad news for employees who take transport to get around or for families for school holidays. Several strikes will disrupt transport in New Aquitaine at the SNCF and in Ile-de-France at the RATP. Occitania is spared but lines will still be impacted.

And in Occitania?
The TER, TGV and Intercités scheduled in Occitania are running normally this Friday, February 18. The strike in New Aquitaine will however have some consequences in our region: the TGV Paris Toulouse/Paris are impacted since they pass through Bordeaux and the TER lines from Toulouse to Agen or Brive are concerned. The SNCF announces 1 train out of 3 between Bordeaux and Marseille (Intercités) including 2 restricted from Toulouse to Marseille. Between Toulouse and Hendaye, 2 out of 3 trains are scheduled. On the Paris-Cahors line, a round trip by Intercités is cancelled.
