Lower Fares on Public Transport in Athens, Thessaloniki from Monday

ATHENS – Τhe fares for the use of public transport in Greek capital, Athens, and its second-largest city Thessaloniki have been reduced as of Monday, to 1.20 euros from 1.40 euros in Athens and to 0.90 euros in Thessaloniki.

The reduction is the result of a lower VAT rate, which was cut to 13 pct for transport services for a five-month period between June 1 and October 31, 2020 as part of broader swathe of measures to support citizens, businesses and the tourism sector in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
