Peris­teri sta­tion on Line 2 of the Athens metro and Ker­ameikos sta­tion on Line 3 are to re­main closed to­day and to­mor­row as part of on­go­ing work to in­stall ticket bar­ri­ers in a bid to crack down on fare dodg­ing. Trans­port au­thor­i­ties have closed sev­eral sta­tions on and off over the past few weeks so that up­grad­ing can get un­der way. A se­ries of at­tacks by uniden­ti­fied van­dals who have smashed ticket val­i­da­tion ma­chines on buses and newly in­stalled bar­ri­ers at metro and train sta­tions has un­der­mined ef­forts to crack down on fare dodgers on the pub­lic trans­port sys­tem with the in­tro­duc­tion of elec­tronic sys­tem.
