The KTEL OF THE PREFECTURE OF KOZANI S.A. in various legal forms covers the transport work of the prefecture of Kozani since the decade of............... However, the date that marks its history is in 1952 as the "Association of Bus Operators" (KTEL) was established. From 1955 until today it is the sole transport operator in the region of the prefecture. The legal form of the KTEL in September 2003 was transformed into a Societe Anonyme under Law 2963/2001 and with the distinctive title "KTEL OF THE PREFECTURE OF KOZANI TRANSPORT COMPANY SOCIETE ANONYME ".
The company, in response to the demands of the times, has upgraded the quality of the services with the aim of transporting the passenger public safely, comfortably and at affordable prices. The modernisation, digital transformation, supply of a new fleet and the well-trained staff are launching a new era for the company.
In recent years KTEL has been characterized by a process of modernisation in terms of technology, such as vehicle tracking systems, as well as in terms of the provision of services, such as monthly unlimited travel cards, free wi-fi.
In an environment of commitment and dedication to safety and comfort of travel, priority has been given to renewing the fleet with environmentally friendly new buses. At the moment the company has a reliable and modern fleet of 128 buses, of which 117 are owned by shareholders and 11 are owned by the company. It also has 12 tourist buses that meet the needs of the “Travel For You” travel agency.
The transport of passengers by bus for the benefit of all citizens is supported towards equal movement. Consequently, disabled people and people with reduced mobility have the possibility to use transport services equal to the possibilities offered to the other citizens. Disabled people and people with reduced mobility have the same rights as other citizens in freedom of movement, freedom of choice and equal treatment.
In the context of the continuous upgrading of services with respect to the valuable time of customers, the company provides the possibility to purchase tickets online as well as non-deviation from the predetermined times of the routes. In fact, for the most effective service, certain routes are modified over time, focusing on the needs of the majority of passengers, also considering individual needs, such as local market and entrepreneurship data.
The quality services are also linked to the availability of an extended complex of 6,500 sq.m., which functions as a modern centre, located close to the city centre. This serves not only passenger transport functions but also leisure and trade (leisure shops, car parking).
This project is supported by the entire staff, who is responsible for the quality of our services. The human resources of the KTEL comprises 19 people, of whom 7 are administrative employees, 6 are ticket office employees, 2 are ticket inspectors and 4 are storekeepers-loaders. The number of drivers of shareholders' buses is 117. Their continuous training and development are of major importance. Everyone works with respect, responsibility, knowledge and prudence for the welfare and safety of the public.
Of course we don't stop here. We continue with steady steps in order to meet the requirements and rights of passengers who choose us for a proper and safe movement.
The following three-fold phrase reflects all the foregoing:
