The Athens Mass Transit System consists of a large bus fleet, a trolleybus fleet that mainly serves the downtown area (city center), the city's Metro, a tram line connecting the southern suburbs to the city centre, and the Athens commuter rail service.

  • Bus (www.oasa.gr): The urban buses that are under the authority of the OASA (organization of urban transport of Athens) connect all Municipalities of Athens and Piraeus. The Athens metropolitan area is also served by trolleybuses - or electric buses.
  • Athens Tram (www.tramsa.gr): The tram network covers ten suburbs of Athens. This network runs from Syntagma Square to the southwestern suburb of Palaio Faliro, where the line splits in two branches; the first runs along the Athens coastline toward the southern suburb of Voula, while the other heads toward the Piraeus district of Neo Faliro.
  • Attiko Metro (www.amel.gr): The Athens Metro is more commonly known in Greece as the Attiko Metro joins together with the Athens-Piraeus Electric rail and the Proastiakos suburban and it has 2 lines. The Red Line (line 2) runs from Aghios Antonios to Aghios Dimitrios and covers a distance of 10.9 km. The Blue Line (line 3) runs from the western suburbs, namely the Egaleo station, through the central Monastiraki and Syntagma stations to Doukissis Plakentias avenue in the northeastern suburb of Halandri, covering a distance of 16 km, then ascending to ground level and reaching Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, using the Suburban Railway infrastructure.
  • Electric railway (ISAP - www.isap.gr): The Electric Railway Company (ISAP) line, which for many years served as Athens' primary urban rail transport. This is today the Green Line (line 1) of the Athens Metro network and unlike the red and blue routes running entirely underground, ISAP runs either above-ground or below-ground at different sections of its journey. It forms the oldest line of the Athens metro network connecting the port of Piraeus with the northern suburb of Kifissia.
