Strike halts metro, ISAP on Jan. 1

There will be no service on the Athens metro and Kifissia-Piraeus electric railway (ISAP) on the first day of 2013 due to a strike by staff protesting pay cuts.

The 24-hour walkout tomorrow will affect ISAP and the metro, but buses, trolley buses and the tram are to run a restricted service. Metro and ISAP staff are to return to work on Wednesday when the restricted service that applies on weekends and public holidays will be in force.

Public transport will clock out an hour earlier than usual on New Year’s Eve.
