Well, it is not pleasant but fairly predictable that the transportation unions in France decided to extend their strike to Monday, November 19th and perhaps beyond.  There is a negotiation session scheduled for Wednesday and some hope has been extended that the strike will end before then.

As it now stands, there is little rail traffiic, the Paris Metro has some closed lines and around half of the buses in the city are running.  Officials hope to have half of the TGV lines running Monday, but you should call ahead to determine which lines and their schedule.
