Ikarus 400 series in Greece
#1
Good day, hello, hi everyone!

I'm so happy to have found your forum as it is ever so challenging to collect any data on public transport in Greece! Smile
I'm an Ikarus enthusiast from Poland. With this post I'd like to ask you about the current Ikarus fleet still in service.
I'm aware of a little Ikarus 405 KHY-5776 operating every summer in Alimos, I was actually lucky to discover its route two years ago (photos if anyone interested here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fgkm/album...5722782183)

But there are more Ikarus 405 in Greece, aren't there? For example the KHI-3696: https://www.flickr.com/photos/154594097@...504133444/
I have also found an Ikarus 417 from 2019 in your gallery: https://leoforeia.gr/photos/displayimage.php?pid=16004

So I guess my question is... Is it still possible to catch any Ikarus 400 series in Greece (school period) in places like Patras and others?

Any kind of information will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards from Poland!

Welcome FGKM!

The Ikarus 405 you discovered belongs to the City of Alimos, a southern suburb of Metropolitan Athens. This bus still operates special routes for the city.

KHI-3696 belongs to the City of Patras and not to KTEL Patras. As far as I know there are two of them, which are still in operation. I don't know if they run any scheduled service or not. The Ikarus 417 is unfortunately withdrawn.

There was one more Ikarus 405 in the island of Poros, which is abandoned. You can take a look here:

So, the answer to your question is yes, it is possible to catch the 405 in Patras and Alimos during school period. 

Greetings from Athens!
