TrainOSE to join the 24-hour general strike on Thursday

Hellenic Railways (TrainOSE) will join the 24-hour general strike called by Greece’s umbrella unions GSEE and ADEDY, it announced on Tuesday.

Trains will not run from midnight on Wednesday to midnight on Thursday. The strike will also affect the Athens-Thessaloniki line trains that leave either city at midnight. In addition, trains no. 600 (departing Athens at 23:55) and 601 (departing Thessaloniki at 23:00) will run after the strike’s end.

TrainOSE has already shut down the ticket-issuing system. Passengers who have already bought their tickets from booths are entitled to reimbursement in cash or in travel coupons, while those who bought tickets online for any of the affected runs will be credited through their credit or debit cards.
