RER B traffic will be “disturbed” by the strike on Saturday, led by the CGT, FO, Unsa and La Base unions, which denounce “the lack of staff maintained for several years by the management of the RER”.
On this line, the RATP plans “on average 2 trains out of 3 with a break in the interconnection [at the Gare du Nord station] and 4 trains out of 5 between 5 p.m. and the end of the service, in order to ensure service to the stadium of France”, specified the group.
The RATP only operates the southern part of the RER B. From the Gare du Nord, it is the SNCF that manages the line towards Saint-Denis and the Stade de France.
Regarding the RER A, the RATP manages most of the line, except for the section from Nanterre-Préfecture to Cergy and Poissy.
The RATP calls on its travelers to use line D, which is operated by the SNCF network, and undertakes to detail a transport plan before 5 p.m. on Friday.
The unions are calling for a “strong impact” on the Champions League final for which a “fan zone” supposed to accommodate tens of thousands of English supporters will also be installed in the Cours de Vincennes, in the east of Paris.
The Champions League final is due to pit Liverpool against Real Madrid on Saturday. Initially planned in Saint Petersburg in Russia, it was relocated to the Stade de France after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
The RATP has already been shaken this week by a three-day strike on its bus and tram network, while a smaller movement affected three metro lines on Wednesday.
