After three days of disrupted rail service, more bad news for regular travellers from Ventimiglia to the Principality.
Due to technical upgrades on the Italian rail network, there will be no service between Menton Garvan and Ventimiglia until 6 am on Thursday, December 7, the French rail operator SNCF has warned. A bus service instead has been put in place.
This comes after a weekend of poor service by the train operator SNCF. Friday, those arriving to the Monaco train station at the end of the workday were met with sudden cancelations and extensive delays in both directions between Menton to Cannes.
On Saturday, high winds and a rock fall disrupted rail travel between Monaco and Italy.
As one fed-up commuter told Monaco Life, “This is simply unacceptable. With the amount of delays and cancelations over the past few weeks, not including several strikes since September, SNCF travel should be free.”
