The public (intercity) buses (KTEL) in Greece are organized regionally or by administrative districts. Therefore, a national schedule is not available.
Links to all local companies can be found on ktelbus.gr. On the websites of the individual regions you will then find the bus schedules (eg. ktelmessinias.gr)
For more information on timetables, please inquire directly with the provider.
From Athens airport the X93 transfer bus will bring you to the main bus terminal (Kiffisou Blvd.).
This trip takes roughly 1 hour, the cost is about 5.-- EUR and the schedules can be found on the OASA website.
