Zevgolatio Railway Station Greece

About Zevgolatio Railway Station Greece

The railway station is located in the town of Zevgolatio in the Velo-Vocha municipality of Corinthia. It is situated 82 kilometers west of Athens. The station is served by Proastiakos trains on line 3 between Piraeus and Koropi, and by suburban services from the city to Magoula and Kiato. The standard ticket (EUR1,40) that is valid for all urban buses and trains in the Athens metropolitan area is also valid on Proastiakos lines; higher fares apply for travel to the Airport, between Magoula and Kiato, and to other destinations outside of the urban zone. Tickets must be validated on special machines before boarding the train.

In the aftermath of the Tempi rail crash that killed 57 people on Tuesday, anger is raging in Greece over the state-owned OSE’s safety record. The country’s transport minister resigned and workers went on strike Thursday, but the cause of the disaster remains unclear. Anger is especially strong over the release of audio in which the train driver was apparently told to ignore a red signal.

Renting a car is probably the best way to get around in Athens, and even better on the islands; bus service can be slow and limited off-season. However, if you prefer to use public transportation, a good option is to purchase a day pass, which includes unlimited travel on all local buses and trains. The dotted lines on the map above show ferry routes, which are covered by many passes and discounted if you have a Eurail pass.
