No the 200 is fine. Infact all the buses are now working normaly. You just have to contend with the air traffic control strike :-)

from the answerphone ;

"le conflit social est terminé"

all buses running normally since Valentine's Day.  Looks like they kissed and made up.

Yes it is becoming very wearisome for those of us with kids needing school transport. The strike is renewed each day and an answerphone confirms for the following day. The number is 04 93 12 00 12

Yep, it's kinda lame... I've been hitch-hiking when I can't find a friend who's going up or coming down from Sophia... In fact, I'm just about to head off right now and stick out my thumb!! Wish me luck!

I rang the gare routière office a couple of days ago and the end date is still unknown.  It has been four weeks now and now that the drivers have lost one month salary they are certainly not going to stop before they get want they want.

Have to tried to get a lift with somebody? That's what I've been doing as I couldn't afford cabbing it everyday!
