Watch out for train strikes around Codebits

CP - a company that operates freight and passenger trains in Portugal - has unveiled a bit more information on what to expect regarding strikes during this week.

 

To put it simply, there should be few to no trains circulating on the 8th and on the 11th.

 

That should pose no problem for most attendees, but they also point out that there may be delays on the 7th, 9th, 10th and 12th.

 

We'll try to gather as much information as possible and we'll do our best to keep you posted, but since the strikes are called by the unions and not by CP itself, it might prove to be a bit difficult.

Transportation strikes on the 7th and 8th of November

According to the wonderful "Há greve?" website there will be several transportation strikes in Portugal on November 7th and 8th.

 

While there's no planned strikes for the 9th (the day before Codebits) people planning on travelling during those two days may be forced to do so before or after the strike, which means there might be more travelers than usual on the 9th.

 

Plan ahead, make sure you get to Lisbon on time.

 

Do you have your tickets already?
