In the year 1926 the company operating the railway and company operating the tram are cooperating and they create two new companies, the Electric Transport Company and the Greek Electric Railways. The first took over the management and operation of the tram lines and railway line Athens - Piraeus and the second took over the obligations of the Rails Athens Piraeus and the expansion and completion of the work of the railway Athens - Piraeus. The company HSAP established in 1976, when the rails Athens Piraeus became property of the Greek government.
