The man jumped from the trolley Tuesday night, suffering fatal injuries, Ekathimerini reported.
The trolley was heading from central Athens to the western suburb of Peristeri. The man jumped off after arguing with a ticket inspector when he was discovered to be traveling without a ticket.
Investigators initially detained the trolley driver and the inspector who asked the man for his ticket for questioning but they were released without charge on Wednesday.
