At the time of writing, SNCF and RATP have not yet published their forecasts. The article will be updated as soon as this information is available online.

SNCF – Route & traffic information in real time

Transilien is the official application for all SNCF trains, whether they are suburban trains, Intercités, TER or TGV trains. You will find real-time traffic information. The application also offers a notification system that alerts you in case of disruptions so that you can bypass them. In practice, the application is not always accurate, but it is still a good tool for learning.

The RATP application

RATP offers an application in the same style as the SNCF application that allows you to obtain real-time traffic information through easily configurable notifications. Indeed, you can choose your preferred lines and stations to organize your trips as much as possible.

Recently updated, the RATP application offers a user-friendly interface even if some features already present in previous versions have been removed: change of route schedules, next passages…

The alternative to carpooling

Carpooling is a modern-day practice that experiences peaks in activity on strike days. More and more French people are opting for this alternative to avoid difficulties in transport. Of course, traffic jams are always a concern, but it is still more comfortable sitting in a car than standing in a crowded train of exhausted and angry people.

Among the most effective applications are of course BlaBlaCar, which is a pioneer in the sector, but other services also allow everyone to “carpool”.

Co -voiturage grève

This is the case for Karos and Klaxit (formerly WayzUp). The concept remains the same, instead of taking the classic transport, you just have to draw your smartphone to find a driver who goes in the same direction as you. Moreover, for Ile-de-France residents, holders of a Navigo Pass can use it via these applications at no extra cost.

Tools for remote working

If you have given up the crowd and monster traffic jams, you still have the option of teleworking. However, teleworking requires certain tools, including email clients and office suites.

To communicate easily with your colleagues and make videoconferences, consider using applications such as Skype. Of course, if your company already has a communication system in place to facilitate exchanges between employees, especially when they work remotely, use it.
