The Athens transportation company OASA plans on introducing electronic ticketing in its bus, trolley and tram services in January, with the measure extending to the Metro and electric railway in the summer of 2017.

With the introduction of electronic tickets, the cost of a ride will depend on the distance, rather than the flat rate currently in place. As such, the cost for short rides will go down, while longer rides will become more expensive.

Electric barriers will be installed in the 64 metro and electric railway stations in Athens, which will only open with a valid electronic ticket.
