A strike by Italian rail workers will result in no trains running between Ventimiglia and Menton on Wednesday, March 8, from about 8:50 am until 5:37 pm. Since the stoppage is not due to start until after the main morning rush hour, the strike is not likely to have a major impact on the majority of cross-border commuters from Italy.
According to French rail operator SNCF, no trains will run from Menton to Ventimiglia after 9:49 in the morning and until 6:48 in the evening. This is likely to affect several thousand Italian employees returning home after a day’s work in Monaco.
In addition, a large number of scheduled services between Nice and Monaco have also been cancelled during the day due to industrial action on the French side of the border, once again making the daily commute more challenging.
