Innovations in Thessaloniki Metro
The entry of a private provider in the operation and maintenance of a public driverless railway project is so far unique in Greece, but internationally it is a tried and tested practice. In full development, the private operator will employ around 300 staff, who will receive special training as the Thessaloniki metro incorporates innovations, i.e. possibility of trains without a driver. The Thessaloniki metro with the extension to Kalamaria will have 14.4 km of network and 18 stations.
