Covid-19 Puts a Brake on Athens Metro Late-night Services

Athens public transport authorities have slashed metro, train, and tram services due to a decline in commuter traffic and as part of government efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Late-night services (Friday and Saturday to 2.30am) on trams and metro lines 2 and 3 have been suspended, while Athens Mass Transit System (OASA) train services have also limited the frequency of their routes, due to declining commuter traffic, down by 70 percent.

Metro lines 2 and 3 will be running from 6.30am to 10pm every 7 minutes and from 10pm onward every 10 minutes.

Line 1 services run from 5.30am to 10pm every 7.5 minutes and from 22.30pm onward between 11.5 and 15 minutes.

Line 5 tram services every 11 minutes from 5.30am to 9pm and from 9pm onwards every 12 minutes.

Athens bus, trolley car, and inter-city train services were reduced last week.

For information on revised times and daily schedule visit OASA Telemetics site or call 11185.

With regard to Covid-19 safety measures, public transport authorities are advising Athens residents to avoid travel whenever possible and practice safe distancing guidelines and are regularly sanitizing vehicles.

Meanwhile, authorities are also announced new restrictions on ferry transport to take effect at 6am on Saturday, allowing only permanent island residents and suppliers to travel.
