ATHENS – The heavy snow that has fallen on the capital has disrupted the normal operation of public transport systems in Athens on Tuesday
Line 1 (electric overground railway) of the Athens metro is running only on the section from Piraeus to Nea Ionia, not the rest of the line up to Kifissia. Lines 2 and 3 are running normally except for the overground services to the Athens airport.
The tram started the routes on both lines at 8:00 in the morning.
The Athens Urban Transport Organisation (OASA) warned that morning bus and trolley routes will not take place, with the bus company in collaboration with the police first carrying out inspections so that buses and trolleys can start to operate with safety where this is possible. Priority will be given to the centre of Athens and Piraeus in order to serve central roads.
The bad weather has also affected the rail network, with trains between Athens and Thessaloniki cancelled, as the Athens-Kalambaka line. The Proastiakos Railway will operate after noon.
