There are usually some services running in France on Christmas Day, both on the railways and on city public transport, but this year ongoing strike action means the service will be more limited.
Unions had stated in advance that there would be no 'Christmas truce' so here are the services running on Wednesday, December 25th.
On the railways one in three of the normal high speed TGV services are running and three in 10 of the usual services on the budget Ouigo line.

The Intercité service is running very few trains indeed and the local TER service is badly hit, with just three in 10 of the normal services running.
In Paris services on the Metro are severely reduced, with only the two automated Metro lines – Lines 1 and 14 – running, and the rest closed completely.
On the tram network, however, things are looking brighter. Lines 1 and 3b are running all day with a 'quasi normal' service and all the other lines are running as normal.
On the RER service is badly disrupted, with line A closed completely while around three quarters of the normal bus services are running.
