Strikes by employees of the Buenos Aires metro (subte) system are set to continue on Thursday, August 2. Services along the line H will cease at 21:00 (local time) and turnstiles in stations along the line will be opened from 19:00 on, allowing passengers to enter without paying. Similar actions are likely on other lines in the coming days.
Increased demand for buses and taxis are to be anticipated during any metro strikes.
Related protests and strikes were held in March and April. The current round of strikes has been ongoing since July 19.
Individuals in Buenos Aires are advised to keep abreast of the situation and avoid any associated street protests as a precaution.
