Public transportation between Sigri-Mytilene
Unfortunately, the public bus (KTEL) schedule is very poor between Sigri and Mytilene and it only performs routes twice a week: on Mondays and Thursdays.
The delegates that will not attend the Meeting’s field trip and wish to leave Sigri on Monday the 22nd of May, will need to take the 06:15 morning bus to Mytilene (that arrives in the city of Mytilene after approximately 2- 2,5 hours).

The delegates that will attend the Meeting’s field trip do not have to worry about reaching Mytilene by themselves, since the city of Mytilene is the final stop of the field trip. We estimate that the field trip buses will have reached Mytilene by 18:00 in the afternoon.
For those delegates that wish to rent a car instead of using the Organizing Committee’s buses for their transportation to and from Sigri (buses that are booked for those that have paid for the 80€ registration pack and field trip), the Organizing Committee will upload communication details of specific local car rental agencies that have agreed to provide special prices for the 2nd IMERP’s participants. Please wait for further announcements.
