Rome public transport strike on 13 October

Latest 24-hour strike involves ATAC and Roma TPL.

A 24-hour strike by Rome's public transport company ATAC is programmed on Friday 13 October, from 08.30 to 17.00 and from 20.00.
The strike will affect Rome’s buses, trams, metro and light rail services Roma-Lido, Roma-Viterbo and Termini-Centocelle.
Employees of Roma TPL, the capital’s suburban bus company, will also adhere to the 24-hour action on the same day during the same times.

Trade unions have called the strike action over fears that ATAC working conditions could be impacted as a result of the city's plan to restructure the troubled transport company, due to be presented on 27 November.
ATAC and Roma TPL services will run as normal during the busiest commuting times on 13 October: from 05.30-08.30, and from 17.00-20.00.

The last public transport strike in Rome was on 29 September. It was originally scheduled as a 24-hour action but at the last minute was reduced to four hours by the city's prefect.
For details of the latest strike see city website.
