Train Strike 14th June?

I have jut read on this following website:

http://www.easytravelreport.com/ there will be a Trenitalia strike on 14th June. We were planning on traveling to Siena that Day (staying in Siena that night)

Are ther other options to get from Pisa to Siena (we are considering hiring a car if needed as we want to stop in Lucca also).

Thanks for any advice!!

In any case consider that on strike day trains have to work as the same before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. This is established by italian law. That means that from 9 to 5 some train can not travel. have a lokk also on trenitalia.com

There are some trains on every line that are guaranteed in spite of strikes. There is also bus service from Pisa airport to Siena, You can see the schedule here:

There are also probably other bus routes, perhaps with a change in Poggibonsi, but I have very limited internet access this week.

Thanks so much for the replies.

Looking at the trenitalia site, there is a train from Pisa to siena at 7.30 and gets in at 9.14 - as this is outside of the offical strike hours, do you know if this train will still run?

That train should run, although it will probably be packed.

Thanks so much Bvlenci

we'll make sure we are early for the train!

The last time we were in Pisa we also got caught up in a train strike so have seen the chaos is causes (especially for unsuspecting tourists) and how packed the buses were!
