Arles to Villefranche-sur-mer No Early Sunday Trains

Hi all!

For some reason I can't find any trains going from Arles to Villefranche-sur-mer before 12:00 on August, 23rd 2020. I can find them every other day of the year except that day. Can anyone help clue me into what I'm doing wrong, or missing here?

Thanks in advance,

Are times for summer posted yet? If I recall, they change schedules on June 1 (maybe, because I dont remember exactly). I think August 23 is far enough away that the current posted schedule is not accurate for that date. Check the SCNF website, or man in seat 61 for how trains are handling schedules for the summer give current situation

The other possibility is that the line is suspended for scheduled maintenance. They often pick a Sunday because traffic is light. But the posting of summer schedule is the better bet.

DeutscheBahn is showing the same schedule options for August 23 as they are for earlier in the summer, e.g. departing at 7:40, 10:05, or 10:39, with two connections by non reserved regional and/or EuroCity trains. DB generally shows all published schedules.

Most other web sites only show schedules for tickets they currently have for sale, usually 3-4 months out for SNCF. I’d wait another week or two to check, since it’s not yet 4 months from departure. The other tickets that SNCF has for sale on August 23 are for connections that partly require reservations, which is likely to be a key difference.
