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 - The United States has a strong and historic relationship with Greece because it trusts it to act in a reliable way, US Ambassador George Tsunis said on Tuesday, at the first press briefing held after meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias earlier in the day.
