Rome's public transport strikes again

A 24-hour public transport strike is scheduled to take place in Rome on Friday 8 February, leading to yet another venerdì nero for the capital's commuters.

Although the capital's public transport is guaranteed until 08.30 and from 17.00-20.00, there will be a much-reduced service during these peak periods.

The strike will affect the bus (city and suburban), tram, metro, and light-rail services serving Roma-Lido, Termini-Giardinetti and Rome-Viterbo.

The night bus service will also be at risk on the night between Thursday 7 and Friday 8 January.

The strike action has been called by various public transport trade unions over the restructuring of salaries, and takes place across Lazio.

For more details see the website of Rome's agency for mobility.
