SNCF: French National Railways strike.

The three-month strike by the French railway workers’ trade unions (intersyndicale des cheminots français) was due to finish at the end of June. However, two unions have now decided to continue their industrial action. This strike is affecting TGV Lyria services. You can claim a refund or re-book tickets already purchased for TGV Lyria.

Based on the latest information from the French National Railways, we anticipate that cross-border services between Switzerland and France will be very infrequent on strike days . The same applies to  regional services (TER). You can find the latest information about the services affected at the TGV Lyria websiteLink opens in new window..

The strike days announced in the programme of strikes are likely to affect train traffic from 7 p.m. on the evening before up to 8 a.m. the following day. You will find further information on the impact of the strike for customers at:

Tickets can be refunded and exchanged free of charge.

Customers affected by the strike can have all TGV Lyria tickets refunded or exchanged free of charge. This also applies to Lyria tickets that would otherwise be non-refundable.

Strike days currently known.

The strike generally starts on the day before at 7 p.m. and ends on the day after the strike at 8 a.m. Unfortunately, trains will only be running occasionally on strike days. Please consult the TGV Lyria website.Link opens in new window.
