More public transport strikes in Rome

Commuters in Rome face two public transport strikes on Friday 26 October. The first strike action, organised by trade union Faisa Cisal, involves 81 bus routes operated by Roma TPL in the city suburbs, from 08.30-17.00 and from 20.00 until end of service.

Between the night of Thursday 25 October and the early hours of the following morning, the service provided by the city's 27 night buses – also run by Roma TPL – is not guaranteed.

The second protest involves the Roma-Giardinetti light rail line, operated by the city's bus company ATAC. This strike, called by the Or.S.A. trade union, is scheduled for Friday 26 October between 20.00 and midnight.

In addition, commuters are likely to experience difficulties on this rail line for ten days, from 26-29 October, and from 6-11 November, as a result of workers abstaining from overtime duties. Rome's agency for mobility says to expect possible cancellation of trains or the partial or complete closure of the line during the ten day action, and advises commuters to use the 105 bus.

The rest of the city's public transport is operating as normal on "venerdì nero".
