Public transport to be disrupted on Thursday

Intercity trains will not be running on Thursday, while certain evening services will also be cancelled on Wednesday, as Greek railway workers participate in a 24-hour strike called by the country’s main public and private unions, GSEE and ADEDY. Services on the suburban railway known as Proastiakos will also be halted during the strike organized following the government’s decision to close down public broadcaster ERT.

The Athens metro and the Kifissia-Piraeus electric railway (ISAP) will operate from 9 a.m. onwards. Blue buses and trolley will halt services throughout the day.

Air traffic controllers will walk off the job from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday.
