  1. Hello,

    For arrival at 7:00 in the morning:
    Is there a ATM at Halkali station?
    How can bus tickets be bought?

    For departure in the evening:
    The train leaves 22:40.
    Any tickets that are sold between 22:00 and 22:40?
    Any kiosks for drinks and snacks available?
    Any wifi available?
