Rail Strikes affecting Monaco

From time-to-time the train service is reduced due to strike action. Legally the SNCF must provide a minimum level of service (a minimum number of trains must be operating) in the event of a strike (grève); revised train schedules are posted on notice boards at stations. Information is also available from the website Info Traffic or by telephone on weekdays. These strikes may also affect transport to Ventimille/Ventimiglia, Italy; the Italian rail service, Trenitalia, publishes updated schedules online.

Note: during a strike, the train service websites may not be operational.
