After ten-day strike, subway service resumes

After ten days out of service due to a workers trade union strike, the subway began running normally today in Buenos Aires City.

All six lines of the subway and the Premetro overground tram service were resumed today following a ten-day union strike that had paralyzed transport across Buenos Aires City.

From 5 am this morning all of the subway lines were running as normal, with the exception of the E line, which “due to technical problems” began running at 6am, Metrovías said today.

The Subte underground trains strike, which dragged both national and City government under the spotlight and affected the daily commute of over 900 million people, was lifted last night following yet another last-ditch meeting between the parties involved.

“The conflict continues, but we decided to make a gesture towards users and workers,” by lifting the strike, said AGTSyP breakaway subway workers union boss Roberto Pianelli, in a press conference last night.
