Rolling Stock

Dual voltage ROTEM-supplied stock with greater luggage space is used for services to Athens International Airport. Line 3 rail vehicles utilize 750V DC third rail current collection between Agia Marina and Doukissis Plakentias, changing to 25kV AC overhead catenary while operating on the Proastiakos suburban railway for access to/from the airport.

Extension to Piraeus

On March 1, 2012, a contract was signed between Attiko Metro S.A. and a joint venture for the construction of the extension of Line 3 from Aghia Marina to Piraeus, 7.6 km long with six stations. Upon completion in 2019, the extension will bring the Korydallos and Nikaia municipalities into the network's catchment area, serve approximately 132,000 passengers on a daily basis and will connect the port of Piraeus, the largest passenger port of Europe with the Athens International Airport in just 1 hour in total.
