Traffic in the Paris metro will be severely disrupted on Friday due to a wage-related strike by RATP employees, with eight metro lines closed and six others partially open only during rush hours.

For the metro lines, traffic will be interrupted all day on lines 2, 3bis, 5, 7bis, 8, 10, 11 and 12, the public company warned in its traffic forecasts published on Wednesday. Lines 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 13 will only be open during peak hours (6:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m./4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.) with a circulation of 1 train out of 2 for line 4, 1 train out of 3 for line 7,9,13 and 6 between Nation and Bercy and 1 train out of 4 for line 3 between Pont de Levallois and Havre-Caumartin. Only lines 1 and 14 will run normally, but the RATP advises travelers to postpone their trips due to “risks of saturation”.

For the RER lines, trains will only run from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. On the RER A, 1 train out of 2 will run at peak times and 1 train out of 3 at off-peak times. The interconnection will be maintained at Nanterre-Préfecture. On the RER B, 1 train out of 2 will run at peak times and 1 train out of 3 at off-peak times. But the interconnection will be interrupted at Gare du Nord.

For trams, 1 out of 3 trams will run, with disparities depending on the line.

On the bus lines, 2 out of 3 buses will run on average, with variations depending on the sector and possibly going as far as the closure of a few lines, specifies the RATP.
