Getting to-and-from CDG airport to Paris during transit strike

I would appreciate any information on how to get to-and-from Paris and the CDG airport during a transit strike. (I would usually take a taxi.) Thank you!!!

If the taxis are running, I would take a taxi.

Public transit strikes means that the people running the metro trains, buses and the like are striking.

Taxi drivers strike every once in a while but not as often.

If the taxis are on strike, then what? Take a Bolt?

I am arriving in Paris on Thursday, when there is a large protest and strike planned. I usually take a taxi, but this trip I have paid extra to have my hotel arrange for a driver to pick me up. I just don’t want to deal with trains or taxis on that particular day.

That sounds like a good idea. I'm staying at an AIRBNB, though, so I will need another back-up plan.

When are you travelling?
Taxi strikes are very rare. When the trains do not run normally the taxi line is longer but you still have the usual # of taxis.

Way too soon to worry. If there's still significant industrial action by late April then yes, you could start looking into private cars (there are a few posts about those on here), but until then... No need to worry about it.

I haven't decided on where to land in Europe on the trip earmarked towards the end of May. If I choose Paris, I will have to rely on the RER B to get to Paris Nord.
