Transport union plan protest outside City Hall in São Paulo September 5; transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/9/2019, 12h00 until 7/9/2019, 11h59 (America/Sao_Paulo). COUNTRY/REGION São Paulo


The bus drivers and collectors union of São Paulo has called for a protest outside the City Hall on Thursday, September 5, to denounce a decision of the Court of Justice ruling that City Hall contracts with bus companies are illegal, consequently reducing bus fleets in the city. Protesters are expected to gather at 08:00 (local time) at the union's headquarters before heading to City Hall at 08:30. Organizers plan to use buses to block roads in the vicinity of City Hall.

Furthermore, protesters have threatened to strike on Saturday, September 6, if the reduction of bus fleets is confirmed by the city government.

A heightened security presence, along with localized traffic disruptions, are expected in the vicinity of the protest. Public transport disruptions are likely throughout the day and on September 6.


Individuals in São Paulo are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate public transportation disruptions, plan alternative modes of transportation, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
