What Is Glyfada Tram?

When discussing transportation to/from Glyfada area, folks refer to taking buses then catching trams. What is the tram system and how does it operate in conjunction with buses? I want to travel from central Athens to and within the Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmenis, Vari areas with frequent short rides. Thank you

You may want to spend some time here: http://www.stasy.gr/index.php?id=33&L=1

I think it might be a bit quicker to get metro from city center to Hellinikon (Red Line) and then catch a bus or tram to Glyfada rather than ride a bus all the way as you mentioned on another thread. The tram serves some areas of Glyfada and then heads only till approximately the Ascepio hospital on Voula, so not very handy for your other explorations.

Should this be on the Corfu Forum?

Just took tram from Faleron to Glyfada & Congo Palace Hotel where we stayed in 1973 when it was USAF Officer's Club

Great tram, same Congo Palace, vastly changed Glyfada
