Monthly transit cards sold through Wednesday

Commuters in the Greek capital have until Wednesday to purchase their 30-euro travel card for the month of September at their nearest metro and ISAP electrical railway station or bus terminus, following an extension to the availability period after the launch of a reduction on travel costs.

Passes, whose price has been reduced from 45 to 30 euros since the start of the month, will continue to be sold from September 11-15 at the bus terminus on Academias Street and at the Syntagma metro station.

According to the Athens transit authority, demand for the new reduced monthly passes allowing unrestricted access to all modes of transport has shot up by 20.17 percent compared with September 2013 as some 286,000 cards were sold this month.

Revenues have also benefited this year compared to last, growing by 33.4 percent to reach 7.5 million euros month-on-month.
