RATP STRIKE MARCH 29. This Tuesday, March 28, 2023 in Paris, the metro lines are disrupted with closed stations. RER A, RER B run at reduced frequencies. What about tomorrow, Wednesday, March 29? Check the traffic forecast.

[Updated March 28, 2023 at 12:00 p.m.] This Tuesday, March 28 is a black day for Parisian metro and RER users. Most metros see their frequency reduced and some lines run at reduced times (lines 2, 8, 11, 13). RER A and B traffic is also impacted by this 10th day of mobilization against the pension reform.

However, the disturbances are less important than at the beginning of the strike movement, at the end of January. Indeed, normal traffic has been announced on the side of buses, trams and Orlyval. What about tomorrow, Wednesday March 29, 2023? Here is what we know below, as well as the RATP's detailed traffic forecast for this day of March 28:

For the moment, very few disruptions have been announced for tomorrow. Only the RATP traffic information announces that this "Wednesday, March 29", the "traffic" will be "almost normal with an average of 3 trains out of 4" on the RER A.

For this Tuesday, March 28, 2023, the Paris transport authority reported disrupted traffic in the metro and very disrupted on RER A and RER B. Some stations are closed, especially on lines 3, 5, 8 and 9 of the Paris metro.

The movement is also renewed at the SNCF, with disruptions on the RER and Transiliens in Île-de-France. Check out the detailed forecast below:

In addition to denouncing an "unfair, brutal and ineffective bill", as indicated in the press release published by the RATP inter-union, the striking agents intend to protect their special pension scheme, which is threatened by the reform of the government. "The interest of having a special regime is first of all to take into account the arduousness of the work. The agents are confronted with night shifts, working underground and handling toxic products", explained Bertrand Hammache, secretary general of the CGT RATP, at France 3.
