Railways Plan 7 Day Strike



Rail services will come to a standstill for roughly seven days in Greece.  This is a result of the four 24-hour rolling strikes called by the Hellenic Railways employees on Oct. 25th, 26th, 27th and 29th and the cancellation of ten scheduled train routes on Oct. 24th, 28th and 30th.
OSE and the Athenian Proastiakos suburban railway trains will not be running in protest over an infrastructure, transport and networks ministry bill on the reorganisation and development of OSE.
On Oct. 25th, 26th, 27th and 29th access to Athens International Airport via public transport will be possible only by bus.

Bulgarian Trains Canceled

The international passenger and cargo trains traveling between Bulgaria and Greece will be canceled for three days, starting on October 25 because of a strike in Greece on these days.
The train from Bucharest to Thessaloniki will travel only to Sofia. There, passengers who want to go to Kulata will be transferred to a train with two second-class wagons.
Due to the strike, the two morning and the two afternoon international trains, traveling from Sofia to Thessaloniki, will be cancele.
Bulgaria’s state railway company BDZ has announced that they will refund the money of all passengers who have already bought tickets for the canceled trains to Greece.
