Mass Transit Schedules Change for Greek Easter Holiday Season

April 6, 2018

ATHENS. Athens and Piraeus mass transportation will go on reduced, or holiday, schedules from Friday to Tuesday after Orthodox Easter, while airport and long-distance buses and boats will be augmented instead with more scheduled runs, to accomodate travelers.

TrainOSE will also reduce routes on Saturday, Easter Sunday and Monday, due to reduced passenger numbers.

Between Friday and Tuesday after Easter, buses and trolleys will run on weekend and holiday schedules, except for the first runs of the day (on daily schedule). On Saturday night, buses will be at their bus depots by 11:00 p.m.

On both days, buses to/from the airport, to/from long-distance (KTEL) depots, and to/from Piraeus port will run more frequently, depending on passenger traffic.

The Athens metro, tram, the electric train (ISAP) and suburban rail (proastiakos) will also follow reduced schedules with longer waiting periods over the holidays.
