The ticket price for urban transportation has increased from 1.20 to 1.40 euros as of Monday, while the price for reduced tickets will remain the same, at 60 cents. This will also affect the cost of most monthly, three-month, six-month and year-long travel cards.

The CEO of urban transport company OASA Ioannis Skoumpouris also told the Athens-Macedonia News Agency that the tickets will be valid for an hour and a half, rather than the 70 minutes at present.

As expected, the ticket hike has prompted reactions for the opposition parties, with the Democratic Alignment’s Yannis Maniatis accusing governing party SYRIZA of incompetence and constant lies.
