Public Transport

The Athens public transportation network offers you a wide variety of routes, combining many different means, namely the metro, railway, buses, trolleybuses and trams. With a 1,40€ ticket you can move around using one or more means of transport within 1 hour and 30 minutes. You can buy tickets from all metro and train stations as well as from the kiosks on the streets. Alternatively, you can inquire about day or weekly passes that offer public transport at a discounted rate.

A quick reminder: When travelling on the bus, metro, railway and tram, passengers are required to validate their tickets after purchasing them and before boarding. The fine for a non-validated ticket in Athens, Greece is 40 times its value. The validation machines in the buses and trolleybuses are orange boxes. On the metro, the boxes are in the station lobby and on the tram, there are beige boxes located on the platform and inside the car. Be sure to inquire about the day and weekly passes that offer transport at a discounted rate.
