RATP and SNCF traffic forecasts for Thursday 9 March
The RATP announced, Wednesday, March 8, to plan for Thursday a further improvement in traffic in Parisian transport, which will however remain disrupted during this third consecutive day of strike against the pension reform.
On the SNCF side, the management announced on Wednesday that the circulation of trains will remain “very disturbed” THURSDAY. One TGV Inoui and one Ouigo out of three should in particular run, as well as two out of five TER on average, depending on the region. Traffic will also remain disrupted on Friday.
On the Parisian network, traffic will thus be disrupted in the metro and very disrupted on the RER B line, but will be almost normal on the RER A (on average 3 out of 4 trains) and normal on the bus and tram networks. The RER B will run on average one train out of two at peak times and two trains out of three at off-peak times. The interconnection between the southern portion of the line – operated by the RATP – and the northern portion – managed by the SNCF – will be interrupted at the 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 disturbed. On Friday, traffic should improve further, according to the RATP. It should remain very disturbed on the RER B and disturbed on “only a few metro lines”. It will be almost normal on the RER A and normal on the bus and tram networks.
