SNCF provides for traffic with “very serious violations”: one TGV in three or even one in five depending on the line, and on average hardly one TER in ten. According to the RATP, the Paris metro will also be reduced to the bare necessities: three lines are closed, ten others are open “only during peak hours”, and the last three are at “risk of congestion”.
