Transport disruption on Thursday

There will be no service on the national railways and on Athens’s suburban railway route (Proastiakos) on Thursday as transport workers join a 24-hour strike called by the country’s main labor union.

There will be restricted services on other modes of public transport to allow workers to attend anti-austerity protests being organized in the capital by the General Confederation of Greek Labor (GSEE) and the civil servants’ union (ADEDY) which is joining GSEE’s 24-hour strike by staging work stoppages.

The Athens metro will not run between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Thursday and its trains will terminate at Doukissis Plakentias station so airport passengers will have to find other routes.

Buses will only run between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., as the early and late shifts will be canceled.

The Piraeus-Kifissia electric railway (ISAP) will run between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. and trolley buses will run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Athens tram will run between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.
