Strike to affect buses, metro, trains and flights
There will be limited public transport in Athens tomorrow due to unions taking part in the 24hour general strike. Buses and trolley buses will not run before 9 a.m. or after 9 p.m., while the Kifissia-Piraeus electric railway (ISAP) and the metro will not run before 10 p.m. or after 4 p.m. Also, the metro will stop at Doukissis Plakentias station and will not travel to Athens International Airport. This is because of a strike by workers at the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE), which means that all inter-city trains and Proastiakos suburban railway trains will be cancelled. Workers on the tram in Athens will walk off the job before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. Air traffic controllers are also due to strike, which is likely to cause disruptions to flights in and out of Greece.
