So it looks like there is actually going to be a strike tomorrow. We went to Chartres today instead of tomorrow as we have heard that maybe the trains won't run. SUre glad we aren't traveling back home tomorrow. We have planned to just walk around our area looking at some lesser known old churches. Patti

A lot of the local trains will not be running. Most of the main line trains will run. Normal service for Eurostar and Thalys. Paris metro and buses will be "almost normal." RER will be perturbed.

Thanks kerouac - We are staying in St. Germain and were planning on going to St Denis tomorrow. I think DH said we would take line 13 up there. Do you think this would work tomorrow? Appreciate your help. Merci.

As Kerouac said, and the RATP website confirms, all metro lines will be running "quasi-normal" tomorrow. Going to St. Denis would be no problem at all. There could potentially be slight frequency reductions on some lines at worst.
