New era for Athens urban transportation
The “Automatic System for Ticket Validation” of OASA (Athens Urban Transport Organization) is functioning properly and the electronic tickets and cards for STASY network (Urban Rail Transports S.A) are being gradually published without problems.
The new “smart tickets” of OASA consist of the electronic ticket (ΑΤΗ.ΕΝΑ Ticket) and the non-personalized and the personalized electronic card (non-personalized and the personalized ATH.ENA Card). The ΑΤΗ.ΕΝΑ CARD is a credit-card size rechargeable plastic card that passengers can charge with several kinds of fare depending on their needs and the fee they want to spend. The multiple ΑΤΗ.ΕΝΑ Ticket is a rechargeable ticket that is aimed at passengers who want to use occasionally or for limited time the public transport.
For the current transition period, the electronic and the paper tickets and cards will coexist, while the inclusion of all kinds of ticketing in the new system will take place over time so the passengers will have the necessary time to be acknowledged with the new capabilities and benefits that may offer.
