In particular, transportation will operate as follows:

There will be no Athens metro, tram, electric railway (ISAP) and suburban railway (proastiakos) services. There will also be no trolley buses on the day, while regular buses will hold two 3-hour work stoppages, one at shift's start (to 09:00) and another at the end (from 21:00).

Other lines affected are:

- Piraeus-Kiato-Piraeus
