Metro and bus strike in Rome on Thursday 18 June.

Rome commuters can expect disruption to public transport services due to a strike on the evening of Thursday 18 June, from 20.00 until midnight.

The four-hour strike will affect Rome's network of buses, trams, metro and light rail services Roma-Lido, Termini-Centocelle and Roma-Civitacastellana-Viterbo operated by municipal transport company ATAC, as well as bus services provided by Roma TPL and Cotral in the suburbs and greater Rome area.
