Hellenic Train announced that buses will start operating as of Wednesday, March 15, to transport passengers on certain routes, until rail traffic is restored.

Further details are expected to be announced later on Tuesday, the company said.

Minister of State responsible for Infrastructure and Transport Giorgos Gerapetritis met anew with railway staff unions on Monday to discuss the safe rebooting of Greece’s railway network following the deadly train collision at Tempi on February 28, until the new ETCS train control and signaling system is operational at the end of next September.

At a meeting with the leadership of the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE), the rail infrastructure management company ERGOSE, and train service providers Hellenic Train to discuss the “reboot” of railway services in Greece, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called the reset of the Greek railways his “own personal wager.”

Among tohers, he said “Our opponent here is the deep state of anachronism…we must fight the islets that resist modernization, we must fight our own worse selves.”

According to media reports, there are thoughts to start the freight trains as soon as possible.

Nevertheless, announcements for the restart of traffic by all sides are expected later today and KTG will keep you posted.
