disruptions in the South West, what to expect on Saturday?

According to SNCF, national traffic should not be too disrupted. But the situation is a little more complicated in the South-West for the TGVs between Paris and Bordeaux – due to a local movement of drivers – and for the TER around Bordeaux.

What is the forecast for Saturday?

After some difficulties on Friday December 16, train traffic will again be “slightly disrupted on certain lines” on Saturday, the day of departure for the Christmas holidays. Twenty TGVs out of 650 will be removed. This will mainly concern the TGV Atlantique between Paris and Bordeaux.

  • TGV Inoui and Ouigo traffic: nearly 9 trains out of 10 insured, 2 trains out of 3 on the Paris-South-West links, due to the movement of signalmen but also a local movement of drivers. “Normal or near-normal service” will be provided on the rest of the high-speed lines.

  • Intercités traffic: traffic will be “almost normal”, and even completely normal on the Paris-Limoges-Toulouse, Paris-Clermont, Nantes-Lyon, Toulouse-Hendaye and Bézier-Clermont axes. The Paris-Rodez-Albi night train is cancelled.

  • TER Nouvelle-Aquitaine traffic: 8 out of 10 trains will run. On the other hand, due to the opening hours of the Bordeaux remote control post operated by SNCF Réseau, there will be no trains departing from or arriving at Bordeaux station before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m. On some lines, replacement buses will be put in place.

SNCF Voyageurs recommends checking the train timetables before going to the station on the SNCF Connect website or on the mobile app “and when possible to cancel your trip”.
