27/04/2018: general information on transport (for example for those traveling on saturday 2nd June)

* SNCF (french train company) puts information on strikes on the website https://www.oui.sncf/train/greve (in french).
It is still too early to know which trains will be cancelled and which ones will travel.
In April and May, there are several trains per day from Paris to Rennes and Saint-Malo, and from Rennes to Saint-Malo.

* Private companies provide buses from Paris to Rennes and Saint-Malo, and from Rennes to Saint-Malo, without strikes.
A bus takes longer than a train but it will not be cancelled.
OUIBUS (in french): https://fr.ouibus.com/ ; FLIXBUS: https://www.flixbus.com/ .

* If you arrive at Rennes Saint-Jacques airport, the best solution is probably to take a taxi towards Rennes train and bus station. There is also a bus outside the airport, not far. See https://www.rennes.aeroport.fr/acces-parkings/bus
