General strike to hit Rome transport on 21 October

Rome public transport commuters will be affected by national strike.

Rome's public transport network faces disruption on Friday 21 October thanks to a national strike called by the USB (Unione Sindacale di Base) trade union.

Services provided by the city’s ATAC buses, trams, metro and light rail services Roma-Lido, Roma-Nord and Termini-Centocelle, as well as Cotral regional coaches and Roma TPL suburban buses, will be at risk from 08.30-17.00 and from 20.00 until end of service.

Employees in the rail sector, both Ferrovie dello Stato and Italo, are also adhering to the strike action, with services interrupted between 09.00 and 17.00. However the strike will not affect the long-distance Frecce routes or Rome’s Leonardo Express between Termini station and Fiumicino airport.
