A total strike launched by Buenos Aires metro (subte) employees on Tuesday, May 22, following the arrest of 16 metro workers, was called off later in the day following their release. However, further strikes affecting some or all of the metro and premetro lines are to be anticipated in the coming days, amid a weeks-long conflict between workers and the government.

Increased road congestion, demand for taxis, and overcrowding on municipal buses are to be anticipated during any strikes.


Individuals in Bueno Aires are advised to keep abreast of the situation.
