Deputy Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Spyros Vougias on Wednesday announced that the “bicycles on Metro” programme will be in effect on three weekdays instead of one following the positive response with which it was met by passengers and riders alike in the first month of its implementation.

As of May 1, up to four bicycles, instead of two, will be allowed in the last train cabin on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 18:00 p.m. until the end of the metro service, while on Sundays and holidays the measure will be in effect on a 24-hour basis.

Vougias said the measure was successful both in terms of cyclist participation and metro service safety, adding that “no problem was reported in the first 45 days of the pilot programme and based on this fact, we have decided to expand the measure and if all goes well it will become permanent in September.”
