Aiming at improving the quality of service and efficiency of the Public Transport Network, the Ministry of Transport has decided to implement a tram network connecting the City Center with the southern suburbs. The Tram will satisfy the increased transport needs and contribute to the protection of the environment. The total length of the tramway will be 23.7 km and the maximum capacity estimated to be 8,500 persons per hour and direction. The project is supervised by Tram S.A, a new company established especially for this purpose, as a subsidiary of Attiko Metro.
