The Athens Metro is growing and new extensions are already being planned, with many new areas entering the expansion plan of Athens’ favorite means of transport.

With 4 decisions of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, the studies for the new extensions to Glyfada, Kallithea, PYRKAL and Petroupoli were included in the planning of Attiko Metro. With this decision, the studies will be financed as part of the SDP INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRANSPORT 2021-2025. In some of these studies are already underway (implementation or design) and other extensions and lines are in the study and development stage.

However, this means that the Metro expansion plan is moving forward and the news is good news for the residents of many areas, which are currently considered “cut off” from fast and sustainable public transport.
