Event

Taxi drivers in Nice threatened to launch a strike on Friday, May 17, to call for further restrictions on app-based ride-sharing companies. If the strike goes ahead as planned, significant transportation disruptions are to be anticipated, including on access roads to Nice-Côte d'Azur Airport (NCE).

Context

Taxi drivers blocked roads to Nice-Côte d'Azur Airport (NCE) on May 14, resulting in significant delays at the airport. Protesters alleged that consumer watchdog agents conducted license inspections of taxi drivers but failed to do so for drivers of tourism vehicles. The upcoming strike on May 17 will coincide with the Cannes Film Festival.

Advice

Individuals in Nice are advised to monitor the situation, budget additional time to reach their destination, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
