The Athens public transport body OASA on Monday announced that a pilot scheme allowing cyclists to load their bicycles onto metro trains and tram cars has been extended until the end of August.
The measure was first introduced on a pilot basis in March, as a way of encouraging Athenians to use bicycles to get around.
OASA said that up to two bicycles at a time will be allowed in the front of the first car and the back of the last car on Athens Metro trains while each tram car will take up to two bicycles in the back of the vehicle.
The Infrastructure, Transport and Networks ministry had originally announced that a final assessment of the measure will be made in September in order to decide whether it will be extended or not.
