Greece: dress code for public transport

In Thessaloniki, a bus driver decided to teach a passenger the rules of decency, choosing no language when discussing her appearance.

The incident took place on Monday, July 11, on city bus route 19. The driver’s anger caused a bra on a young girl, which, in general, is justified in such heat. But, writes, the driver bluntly demanded to dress more decently for a trip on public transport.

The girl burst into tears, and in relations with other passengers “tension arose.” A young man and the girl’s mother arrived on the scene, saying that “the girl will dress as she wants.” Soon the police arrived, called by the bus driver (apparently he really considered this a crime), who explained to the ΟΑΣΘ employee that the law does not provide for any rules for choosing clothes for traveling on the bus.

Not so long ago, a few weeks ago, a similar incident occurred in Xanthi. The bus driver suggested that the young passenger leave the cabin due to the fact that she was wearing a top. The administration initiated an investigation and applied disciplinary action. Regarding the incidents, the management of ΟΑΣΘ stated that there were no orders regarding the appearance of passengers and there were none. Sources in the organization report that the driver acted on his own initiative, and disciplinary procedures have already begun.
