September 1, 2009
This warden message is being issued to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and residing in Bolivia about a bus strike in Cochabamba. We received information that buses are blocking the main arteries in Cochabamba preventing vehicles from circulating freely. It is recommended that travel be kept to a minimum. If you must travel, please use caution.
Due to the resulting traffic congestion, the Consular Agency in Cochabamba may be delayed in opening or may not open. If you require emergency consular services please contact the American Citizens Services unit in La Paz at (591)2-216-8246 or the Consular Agency in Santa Cruz at (591)3-351-3480.
We hope this information is useful to you. If we may provide further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
