Taxi drivers continue to hold protests in Faro as of Thursday, September 20. Around 200 taxis have gathered on the 125/10 National Road leading to Faro International Airport (FAO). While a lane has now been opened to allow access to the airport, traffic disruptions remain likely, along with lower taxi availability.
Nationwide protests were held on September 19 to denounce a decision by the president to regulate ride-sharing app services such as Uber and Cabify. The largest gathering took place in the capital Lisbon, while other demonstrations were held in the cities of Porto, Braga, and Faro.
Individuals in Portugal are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution and allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
