A pilot program allowing bicycle riders to use bus lanes in central Athens goes into effect on Monday.
The pilot program will be in effect through September 18, and its results will help determine whether the measure will be permanently implemented.
Under the pilot program, bicycles will be allowed use of bus lanes throughout the day, in a single line and on the far right of the lane next to the pavement, without maneuvering around buses and other vehicles, so as not to hamper traffic.
