KTEL upgraded its fleet

«Thirty percent of our passengers are students. As you can imagine, we’re worried,» said KTEL cross country bus service preident Eleftherios Pallas. »We attended all the meetings with the mayor. Last year, KTEL invested large sums and upgraded its fleet so it could offer the best service possible to the students who come and study here. If there’s a big drop in activity, which will become apparent next year, then we have a big problem. We have 125 buses. The 91 owners invested, they all paid 24,000 euros to buy the buses, they borrowed money, took on drivers. If we have to cut down on the services what will happen? The owners will go to prison for debt and the employees, drivers and others, will lose their jobs. We estimate we can sustain only a five percent drop in activity.»
