There will be a 24-hour nationwide local transport strike on Friday 1 December beginning at 08.30. In Rome, the industrial action will affect all bus, tram and metro services as well as local train services. Services will run as normal between the guaranteed 17.00-19.30 period before being suspended again for the rest of the strike.

Disruption is also expected on the national train service over the weekend due to a 24-hour strike by some minor trade unions, beginning at 21.00 on Saturday 2 December. A list of services that will be affected on Saturday and Sunday can be consulted at www.trenitalia.it, but passengers wishing to travel during the 24-hour period are also advised to call 800892021 (active from 07.00 on Saturday 2 December) to check whether their train will be running.
