PROASTIKOS (SUBURBAN RAILWAY)
The suburban railway (Proastiakos) is a relatively new choice of public transportation of Athens.
It services suburbs of Athens that were not otherwise covered by other means of public transportation, passing areas such a Pallini, Kantza and Koropi. The route from Aharnon (from the Larissa Metro Station to the El. Venizelos Airport) takes 40 minutes.
At this time, the network covers a 120 klm long section and is forecast to have a full programming by 2010 that will span a length of 281 klm. Specifically, the now running routes are: Airport- Ano (Upper) Liosia and Piraeus - Kiato.
Future routes include those reaching Chalkida, Thiva, Rafina, Lavrio, Loutraki and Xylokastro. Furthermore, there will be new stations in the areas of Tavros, Thymarakia, Ag. Anargyroi, Pyrgo Vasilissis, Lykotrypa, Zephyri, Metamorfosi and Acharnes.
The cost of the ticket will vary depending upon the destination. The railway also offers monthly, semester and yearly cards with unlimited use – which cover a wide range of routes for a particularly low cost.
