Use of elec­tronic tick­ets will be­gin on Athens pub­lic trans­port from June 1, Trans­port Min­is­ter Chris­tos Spirtzis pledged yes­ter­day, de­spite op­po­si­tion from the Data Pro­tec­tion Au­thor­ity re­gard­ing the per­sonal de­tails com­muters are ex­pected to di­vulge to be is­sued with dig­i­tal travel passes.

Spirtzis also as­sured MPs that the in­stal­la­tion of new ticket bar­ri­ers at metro sta­tions and ticket read­ers on buses and trol­ley buses is on track even though the equip­ment has come un­der at­tack from van­dals, as the cost of re­pair­ing the dam­age does not come out of the state’s bud­get.

Mean­while, Aghios Ioan­nis and Ker­ameikos metro sta­tions will be closed to­mor­row so that new ticket dis­pens­ing ma­chines can be in­stalled.
