The historic Thessaloniki ferries will once again be sailing the Thermaic Gulf, south of the port city, as part of a pilot program aimed at improving transportation services.
As of mid-May and through to October, three small ferries running daily will offer Thessaloniki residents and visitors alternative means of transportation, linking the port of Thessaloniki with locations across the eastern coast of the Theramaic Gulf.
“We plan to relaunch the boat service around May 12-15, and we’ve included new stops in Kalamaria and Agia Triada, in order to serve more people. The exact routes will be established in the coming weeks, with ferries departing hourly,” Thessaloniki Waterways representative and ship-owner Manos Kailas told the Athens News Agency.
According to Kailas, the service handled some 40,000 passengers last year.
