The Athens 2004 Olympic Games Organizing Committee and the Athens Urban Transport Organization have collaborated in creating 23 new express bus routes for transportation needs related to the Olympic Games.
The new routes were announced on Thursday, and were added to ensure the convenient and quick transport of Olympic Games visitors, volunteers, and staff; and to discourage the use of private vehicles since parking will not be available at Olympic venues.
Buses will run frequently and will be free of charge for those who have a ticket for an Olympic event or appropriate accreditation. Additionally, the buses will have dedicated lanes for their exclusive use.
