Taxi drivers are planning to launch a nationwide strike on Thursday, October 10, starting at 06:00 (local time) to demand the implementation of government reforms for taxis. According to the leader of the Association of Taxi Drivers of Honduras (Ataxish), the government has failed to implement reforms that were previously agreed upon with the Honduran Institute of Land Transportation (IHTT). Significant transportation disruptions are possible on Thursday if the strike is held. Associated protests are also possible, including taxi drivers blocking roads and major intersections in cities across the country.
Individuals in Honduras are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, allow additional time to travel, and plan alternative modes of transportation.
