Taxi drivers in Barcelona are slated to protest app-based ride-sharing services on Thursday, July 25, during a 48-hour strike that starts that same day and will end on the evening of Friday, July 26. Drivers are protesting the government's decision to restore regulations that allow companies such as Uber and Cabify to operate in Catalunya.
Taxi service interruptions are to be expected, including at the Barcelona El-Prat (BCN) airport. Associated localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are expected in the vicinity of all protests.
Individuals in Barcelona and those traveling into/out of BCN are advised to monitor developments to the situation, prepare for transportation disruptions and make alternative arrangements if possible, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
