In Grenoble, as in all large cities, public transport traffic should be affected, Tuesday, October 5, by the national day of inter-professional mobilization for wages and employment. Disturbances are announced.
On its website, the Semitag, which manages public transport in the agglomeration of Grenoble, warns that “the TAG network will be disrupted”. A “part of the staff” should indeed follow the national call to strike. Concrete consequence: there will be fewer buses and trams in circulation. Events planned in the city center may also lead to line interruptions or deviations from 9:30 a.m.
Line A (operating from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.): one tram every 6 minutes
Line B (operating from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.): one tram every 10 minutes
Line E (operating from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.): one tram every 8 minutes
The Semitag warns that all tram lines will stop gradually from 7:30 p.m.
Concerning the circulation of buses, disruptions are also to be expected on the “Proximo” and “Chrono” lines. Traffic will, however, be normal on the “Flexo” lines. You can find all the details on the Semitag website.
At the origin of the disturbances announced, the call for strikes and demonstrations launched by the unions CGT, FO, Solidaires, FSU, as well as Fidl, MNL, UNEF and UNL for young people. Six months before the presidential election, they say they want to send “a strong signal” to defend salaries. Another point of vigilance, the question of pensions, which continues to hover over the end of Emmanuel Macron’s mandate and will be an essential subject of the campaign.
