Athens tram on track for Olympics

The first through test run on the new tramway built in the Greek capital took place in mid-June, marking the completion of the infrastructure on the 20-km line. Driver training with the AnsaldoBreda Sirio low-floor trams is now in progress, so that commercial operation can start in mid-July, a month before the start of the Olympic Games.
