Athens Metro

The Athens Metro (Greek: Μετρό Αθήνας, Metró Athínas) is a rapid transit system in Greece, serving the Athens conurbation and parts of East Attica. It incorporates the second-oldest metro line in the world, the Athens-Piraeus Electric Railways (ISAP S.A.), which opened in 1869 and is now part of Line 1. Beginning in 1991, Attiko Metro S.A. constructed and extended Lines 2 and 3, and the Attiko Metro Operations Company (AMEL S.A.) operated these lines from 2000 until 2011. The metro network formally merged in 2011 when the Greek government created the Urban Rail Transport Company (STASY S.A.), a subsidiary of the Athens Urban Transport Organization (OASA S.A.).
