The plan increases the available transport in train stations to help passengers return home.
“We put into service a large number of taxis so people could return home,” explained a spokesman for the SNCF, adding the taxis were paid for by the state-run company.
Some 200 technicians worked overnight to repair a line that was damaged by the Paris- Bordeaux train Monday evening which disrupted traffice in both directions. Hundreds of passengers were delayed for several hours.
Earlier the Paris-Marseille train ground to a halt after a suicide caused delays of several hours. In total around a dozen high-speed TGV experienced delays of between 45 minutes and an hour.
Monday’s disruption comes after a weekend which saw a total of 12 suicides on the national railway system and one technical failure.
