Transport for Athens: The Athens Transport System

The Athens Public Transport system is the largest public transport system in Greece and ranked among the best in Europe. It is efficient and provides reliable transportation services to citizens and visitors in the wider Athens metropolitan area.

The Athens Public Transport System consists of a metro, a tram and an extensive bus and trolleybus network, which provides easy access to all major points of interest (e.g. Acropolis, Plaka, Museums, etc.), many hotels and major convention centers.

The Athens metro is the backbone of the Athens Transport System. It has 3 lines and provides direct connection of the City Center to the city's entry points like the Airport of Athens, the Port of Piraeus and the Larissis Railway Station. The Athens metro is extended from north (Kifisia) to south (Port of Piraeus) and east to west, connecting the majority of the urban suburbs.

Metro Line 1, better known as "ΙLEKTRIKOS", initially began as steam powered and later became electric powered. It has been connecting Athens with Piraeus since 1869 while the new metro lines (lines 2&3) are considered among the gems of modern Athens.

The construction of the two new lines (2&3) made headlines when ancient artefacts were found underground and halted its progress. Many of these ancient artefacts are presented in special exhibits incorporated into the design of the stations of metro line 2 and 3.

The Athens metro stations are very impressive and are included among the most beautiful stations in Europe, with several of them being small museums by presenting original artifacts or replicas of archeological treasures, which were found during excavations.

The Athens bus and trolleybus network is very extensive and allows the travelers to reach the most distant points in the metro area. The environmental friendly bus fleet amounts a total of more than 2000 vehicles and has one of the largest CNG and trolley fleet in Europe, consisting of 614 CNG buses and 366 electric trolleys respectively. All vehicles of the bus fleet are modern, air-conditioned and accessible to people with reduced mobility.

Furthermore, EXPRESS buses connect the Athens International Airport with the city Center (Syntagma sq.), the Piraeus Port and the Intercity Bus Terminal (KTEL Kifisos) on a 24hour basis.

The Athens tram is one of the big projects that have been built for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. It connects the southern suburbs with the city center, while also provides a scenic ride and transport service along the coastal line.

The Athens Transport System offers a wide variety of tickets for citizens, visitors and tourists. Daily tickets, 3-day tourist tickets and 5-day tickets offer unlimited travel, at a low price, with all transport means, within the city, while the 3-day tourist ticket also includes a roundtrip route to the airport.

Special group tickets for use by convention attendees can also be provided, after a special fare settlement with the Conference/Congress Organizing Committee.
