City officials have stated on Sunday, July 28, that Parana's debt may cause for public transportation disruptions over the coming days and weeks until the budget is balanced. The administration is unable to pay staff salaries for the month of July and is preparing to call a state of emergency. Should this take effect, there will be less bus service due to a reduction in personnel.
Transportation disruptions should be expected over the next several days. Protests by transportation staff cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Parana are advised to monitor developments to the situation, plan alternate means of transportation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
