Does anyone know if the buses are OK on 17/05 as I'm travelling from Preveza to Ioannina.

Haven't seen any mention of buses being out of service but a possibility. As it's critical to you it may be best to check with KTEL:

And check again nearer the date.

Thanks Maik.   :btu:

I suspect the buses aren't included but it is crucial as you say.  I've tried getting reliable and up to date info out of KTEL sites... so I'll probably phone them!  Preveza KTEL has at least three numbers for its ticket office so you see what I mean!

Greek hospital doctors have announced a 48-hour strike on May 17 and 18 in response to the “unpopular measures” included in the recent deal between the government and the country’s international creditors.

Bus routes will also be disrupted due to intermittent work stoppages on May 16, 17 and 18.

The Athens Mass Transit System (OASA) has declared a series of industrial actions that will disrupt public transport on May 16 and 18 in Athens. The workers’ union issued a statement protesting against the government’s agreement to a new memorandum linked to a set of harsh measures against social groups and employees. Buses will not be running on May 16 from 11am till 4pm, on May 17 and 18 from the start of the shift till 9am and from 9pm till the end of the shift.

Thanks Maik. I phoned the ticket office at Preveza KTEL (seeing that they hadn't replied to my message off their site).  A nice man told me there wouldn't be a problem.  And I'm not planning on seeing a doctor.

Archaeological sites in Greece to shut for strike

Greece’s archaeological sites and most museums will remain closed between 12 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday due to a strike by unionists demanding the payment of employees on short-term contracts.

Not clear if it will only apply to major sites or whether it will affect those sites on Kef that are open.
