Instructions for commuters and public transport passengers as of May 4

Here are some instructions for commuters and public transport passengers should follow when Greece starts the gradual lifting of lockdown restrictions on May 4, 2020. Key points are: Avoid unnecessary use of public transportation, wear a face mask during all transits, and practice diligent social distancing

Citizens are also being asked to use their car instead of public transportation.

The suspension of traffic-zone restrictions in central Athens introduced after the pandemic are extended to the end of May.

Ψar drivers can have up to two passengers per journey, up from the previous one. 

Passengers are also advised to avoid entering trains en masse, waiting for the next train instead, and to practice social distancing at stations and stops.

Platforms will be marked to help passengers keep a distance while waiting.

All passengers are prohibited from entering the front doors of buses and trolleys, to protect drivers.


As before, only one passenger per taxi ride will be allowed except for a parent with minors or people escorting someone for medical reasons. All will be obliged to wear masks while in the taxi. 

The public is also encouraged to avoid using cash, using instead credit or debit cards. [via amna.gr]

The roadmap for the gradual lockdown lifting is here.

PS Among others, passengers should keep a 1.5-meter distance to each other in public transport means. I want to see this!
