Two female peregrinas now in Chartres were hoping to get to St Jean via Paris on Monday April 23. Train strike creating need for alternate plan. Any suggestions?

Can you go the day before, or 2 days after?
Try the web site Rome2rio.I checked it out for Paris to Bayonne on 23/4 there is a Flixbus which leaves at 8 a.m and the fare per person is just under 80 euro.Then on the Rome2 rio web site I searched for Bayonne to St Jean Pied de Port and it indicates there is an Alsa bus to take you there.Blabla car is a car sharing web site and you may find other options there.Alternatively as someone else suggested you could travel tomorrow or Sunday and that might be the best option because the 24/5 is also a strike day..
