Old tickets discontinued on Athens transport as of Thursday


As of Thursday, old paper public transport tickets can no longer be used.

Commuters are now able to renew electronic 90-minute tickets at machines, as is the case with monthly passes.

Meanwhile electronic barriers will be activated on Monday so that no one without a ticket can get to train platforms.

Employees of STASY, the company that manages fixed-track forms of public transport in Athens, will be posted in stations to carry out inspections and provide information.
