Transport system in Greece

  1. 1. Transport in Greece
  2. 2.  Transport in Greece has undergone significant changes in the past two decades, vastly modernizing the country's infrastructure. Although ferry transport between islands remains the main method of transport between the nation's islands, improvements to the road infrastructure, rail, urban transport, and airports have all led to a vast improvement in transportation. These upgrades have played a key role in supporting Greece's economy, which in the past decade has come to rely heavily on the construction industry.
  3. 3. Air  Athens International Airport (ATH) handles most international flights.  Other international airports are Crete Heraklion Airport (HER), Corfu Kerkira Airport (CFU), Mykonos Airport (JMK), Kos Airport (KGS), Rhodes Paradisi Airport (RHO), and Thessaloniki Macedonia Airport (SKG).
  4. 4.  Greece’s national airline is Olympic Airlines, connecting with all domestic and some international airports. Most major airlines fly into Athens.
  5. 5. List of numbers of airports  International airports (15)  National airports (20)  Other public use airports (4)  Military airports (8)  Closed airports (3)
  6. 6. Bus There are some very small blue buses that go through central Athens on the small interior streets. The Blue busstops are blue. They can be called Local Busses.
  7. 7.  Yellow Trolleys and Blue Buses can take you anywhere in the city and in the suburbs. The Trolleys run on electricity and the stops are usually yellow. Tickets cost 1 Euro and must be bought from a kiosk or at special stands in main squares and at some bus terminals.
  8. 8.  For going to the beach check out Athens Coastal Tram that goes from Syntagma Square.
  9. 9. Airport Buses  There are several bus lines to and from the airport. Final destination Main Bus Station. Athens Airport Buses run 24 hours connecting the airport with the city centre and the Port of Piraeus.
  10. 10. KTEL Attika Buses  The Orange uses take you to the countryside of Attiki outside Athens and it's suburbs.  There are other light green KTEL buses that go long distance and leave from two bus stations in Athens.
  11. 11. Metro  Athens Metro system connects the airport with most points in the city centre, as well as Port of Piraeus.
  12. 12. Athens Subway & metro Map
  13. 13. Taxi  Taxis are available to/from the airports. There are additional charges for airport transfers and latenight fares from 01:00am-06:00am, with double fare from 02:00am-04:00am.
  14. 14.  There are about 15 radio taxi companies in Athens. Some established companies include Athina (tel. 210/921-7942), Express (tel. 210/993-4812), Parthenon (tel. 210/581-4711), and Piraeus (tel. 210/418-2333-5).
  15. 15. Car rent  Car rent is very spread among the     tourists and Greeks. Rent of the car for 7-10 days can start from approximately 2100 UAH (200 EURO) and higher. Cars are divided into: Economy: Chevrolet Matiz, Nissan Micra etc. Family: Hyundai I30, Hyundai Elantra etc. Luxury: BMW 320i etc. People carriers: Fiat Doblo, Fiat Scudo etc.
  16. 16. Cable Car  It's quite an interesting & scenic ride down to the shore from the town of Thira. Cable Car on Santorini.
  17. 17. Rail  Eurostar and Rail Europe offer train routes linking Europe with Greece. There are regular rain connections between Athens and Thessaloniki with Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey.
  18. 18.  Greece’s domestic railway company is Hellenic Railways Organization Ltd.
  19. 19. Water Routes  The busiest maritime ports for goods transport are: Eleusis, Heraklion, Megara, Igoumenitsa etc. (19)  The busiest maritime ports for passenger transport are: Aegina, Antirrio, Corfu, Heraklion, Mykonos. (20)  Prebooking ferries is not ALWAYS a "must do". Most ships have free tickets even last minute. So, many people just buy ferry tickets upon their arrival. NEVERTHELESS, this doesn't apply for local short trips
  20. 20. FERRIES  These are the slowest vessel. Provides the longest trip time but definitely the most "purist" one. Simple conventional ferries are the cheapest option.
  21. 21. HIGH SPEED FERRIES  High speed ferries are big vessels which resemble more to a cruise ship rather than a slow ferry. Quick, comfortable, newly built are the best overall option of sea travel in Greece. Most often a little more expensive than a slow ferry, do the job quickly and efficiently. They have an option of a seat: airtype seat, economy or accommodation.
  22. 22. HI-SPEED CATAMARANS  Catamarans ( Cat's ) are double hulled vessels that carry about 150 - 500 passengers in airplane style seats, achieving highest possible speed. This is the quickest way of doing a route, sometimes in only half of the time other vessels provide.
  23. 23. FLYING DOLPHINS ( HYDROFOILS )  Imagine a small arrow like vessel, which when reaching a certain velocity(speed), lifts up from the sea and gets inclined, going quickly to its destination. These are "flying dolphins". This is a small vessel, carrying about 100 - 150 passengers, doing short interisland trips, lasting about 20 mins 90 mins. They have airplane seats.
  24. 24. FERRIES AND BOATS Ferries and boats between islands. Also can be used in excursions.
