RATP expects normal traffic on most metro lines despite the March 25 strike
Unlike the previous strike, which severely disrupted business travel in the Ile-de-France region last February, the March 25 strike should have a reduced impact. The RATP published its 48-hour forecast on Wednesday. These forecasts show normal traffic on the RER network and almost normal traffic on the metro. Slight disruptions
” will be limited to lines 2, 7, 8, 9 and 13, the other metro lines operating normally. Normal traffic is also expected on RER lines A and B, with interconnections maintained at Nanterre-Préfecture and Gare du Nord.
On the surface, however, the March 25 strike could be more problematic. Indeed, 30% of the bus lines will be interrupted, with the open lines operating at an average rate of only one bus in two.
In the tramway, the T8 line will even be closed. Streetcars 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 5, 6 and 7 will see their activity reduced to half or even a third of normal operation. ” Precise information will be provided tomorrow [Thursday]

I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
