Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and the capital of Regional Unity of Thessaloniki which comprises 14 municipalities.
Passenger transport in the Regional Unity of Thessaloniki is currently solely served by buses. Over the next years significant changes in the city’s passenger transport system are anticipated as a new METRO system, currently under construction, will be operational.
