Metro workers are expected to hold partial strikes in Barcelona on Friday, May 10, Monday, May 20, and Friday, May 24. The strike schedule is the following (all times local): on May 10 from 06:00 to 22:00, on May 20 from 16:00 to 20:00, and on May 24 from 07:00 to 09:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00. While these walkouts are likely to cause significant delays, Barcelona transport authorities have pledged to keep 40 percent of metro services running during rush hours (between 06:00 to 09:30) and 20 percent during off-peak times. Increased demand for alternate means of transportation are to be expected (e.g. bus, taxis, etc.).
Barcelona metro workers are striking to demand that authorities implement appropriate measures for asbestos removal in the metro system.
Travelers and individuals in the area are advised to monitor the situation and make alternative travel arrangements, as needed. Please consult the Barcelona metro website for further information.
