Greece: Leaving the Car at Home

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Public transportation will be free for one day on Tuesday, September 22 as part of the celebration of European Mobility Week (Sept. 16-22).

Motorists are invited to leave their cars at home, use public transport and become acquainted with the new upgraded services offered in big cities.  Apart from events scheduled in Athens, Thessaloniki will also host a bicycle race, starting at 18.00 on the same day at Aristotelous Square.   Marking its 8th edition, European Mobility Week consists of a campaign promoting sustainable transportation.

Since then the campaign has been open to every European city willing to participate.   European Mobility Weekwww.oasa.gr
