Hi:) I’m travelling from Athen to Bari by train and ferry in June. My ferry departs from Patras to Bari and so i searched for train/bus connections from athen to patras. i found out that there is no direct train connections due to constructions, but that i can take a train from athen to kiato and there change into a bus that replaces the train until patras. but i can’t find any sort of timetable for the trains and busses, i looked in the interrail app, the trainose website and the hellenic train websites: they all say that there is no connection available on the selected date. i travel on june 8th but i also tried different dates to verify if there’s a connection at all and it just doesn’ show...is it too early to book the train and the timetables are not up yet? or is there just no connection at all at the moment, or there is but it’s just not on the website yet? i’m really confused snd a bit stressed as i need to book the ferry asap and need to know if i even can travel from athens to patras:/ please help😅 thank you so much <3

Timetables are normally here:

https://www.hellenictrain.gr/en

Normally there are train/bus connections almost every hour. But currently there's still bus replacement after the recent big accident and they're slowly restarting train traffic here and there, but not yet to Kiato. Keep checking this website. The current bus replacement schedules Athens-Patra are listed in the PDF posted here:

Google Maps gives me a 1h25 scheduled journey but I do not have experience taking this bus

Thanks, I was trying to look for next week but that doesn’t work.

One should just put a random date in current week to get timetables.

Took the bus in 2021 and it was around 1,5 hour.
