Greece: Public Transport Changes Due to General Strike on April 6

ATHENS – A 24-hour nationwide general strike called on Wednesday will affect both the private and public sectors, as well as transportation.

In particular, transportation will operate as follows:

There will be no Athens metro, tram, electric railway (ISAP) and suburban railway (proastiakos) services. There will also be no trolley buses on the day, while regular buses will hold two 3-hour work stoppages, one at shift’s start (to 09:00) and another at the end (from 21:00).

Urban trains (proastiakos) from Athens or Piraeus to the Athens International Airport and the Athens-Thessaloniki intercity line will run on a very reduced schedule, as announced by Greece’s national railway operator TrainOSE.

Other lines affected are:

– Piraeus-Kiato-Piraeus

– Athens-Chalkida-Athens

– Thessaloniki-Larissa-Thessaloniki


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called on the voters to send a message of stability in the European Parliament elections on June 9, noting that the country has a stable four-year government and that political instability is "the last thing it needs".
