Toulouse: Act 44 Yellow Vests Invade Matabiau Station, Eight Trains Delayed

Local News
Yellow Vests invaded Matabiau station in Toulouse

The yellow vests were introduced on the rails of the station Matabiau Saturday 14th September 2019 in Toulouse. Eight trains were delayed. Line A of the subway is also interrupted.

It was probably the highlight of the day, for the yellow vests. Protesters have indeed managed to enter the compound of Matabiau station, yet placed under high security since the beginning of the movement, Saturday 14th September 2019, shortly before 4 pm, on the occasion of Act 44 of the mobilization. Many of them went on the rails, singing some protest songs.

Ten minutes on the rails … and eight trains delayed

The yellow vests had not entered the precincts of the station since early December 2018. Still, the call was only short. The protesters stayed about ten minutes on the tracks before the police intervened to dislodge them. No damage should be reported, but the SNCF has consequences on rail traffic: a TGV, Intercités and six TER are late.

Metro line A interrupted and buses disrupted

More usual: Tisséo also indicates that “because of this event downtown”, line A subway is interrupted in its entirety, since about 15:30. The deviations set up facilitate connections with Line B, to continue your movements. On the bus side, the airport shuttle as well as lines L1, L4, L7, L8, L9, 14, 15, 23, 29, 39, 44, 45 and 70 are deflected. The shuttle Downtown is suspended.

Practical information:
To find out in real-time the situation, it is on  the site of Tisséo and that of the SNCF.
