Tickets for public transport in Athens and Thessaloniki will become cheaper from June 1st because of the Greek government's decision to reduce transport VAT from 24 per cent to 13 per cent from 1 June to 31 October under measures to support citizens, businesses and tourism for the coronavirus, ANA-MPA reported.
The complex single ticket for public transport in Athens is cheaper from 1.40 euros to 1.20 euros. In Thessaloniki, the one-time ticket becomes 0.90 euros, BTA transmits.
