Great news, Woonsocket! That unfinished Yenikapi junction has been such a missing link. The design concept for the metro/tram lines on the European side is IMO thoroughly sound, but for the last several years it has felt like... just around the corner, but then after all... not quite. I'm almost tempted to travel to Istanbul for a late summer break to see for myself.

Istanbul driverless train contract signed
17 Jun 2014


CAF has supplied trainsets for Istanbul metro Line M4

TURKEY: Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality has formally awarded CAF and Mitsubishi Corp a €119m order to supply 21 six-car driverless trainsets for the future metro Line M5, the companies announced on June 17.

Line M5 will run entirely underground from Üsküdar to Ümraniye and Çekmeköy on the Asian side of the city. It will be 19·7 km long, including a spur to the depot, with 16 stations.

CAF is to produce the vehicles, with Mitsubishi Corp supplying electrical equipment including the automation systems which it says will be deployed in Turkey for the first time. Deliveries are scheduled for 2016 to 2017.

Mitsubishi Corp said the two suppliers have a long-standing business relationship, and the contract was awarded based on IMM’s positive evaluation of equipment supplied for driverless trainsets in Dubai and Singapore as well as CAF’s price competitiveness. Mitsubishi Corp said the companies ‘aim to further contribute to the development of metro lines with fully automated driverless systems in Turkey’.

I remember crossing the Bosphorus by ferry last time I was in Istanbul, now I would sure take a ride on Marmaray

Here is Istanbul map in the INAT series:

I really don't like schematic images,
they are so imaginary,

I think this is the best,

@Edil Arda

I think a combination of both maps is actually necessary.

- We need a large geographically accurate map, on a station wall, to be able to see the whole system and understand the distances and the city layout.

- We need a small schematic map that fits a 20x20 cm printed flyer or a mobile phone screen that helps us memorize the main characteristics of the system and contain all necessary information in a reduced space.

Paris has got both of them and it works very well.


On a schematic map since the available space is scarce geographic features must be distorted and main features highlighted.
In istanbul I have Highlighted the Metrobus half-ring and the Marmaray link with neat recognisable shapes.
Inside the Metrobus ring it is even quite close to geography. Only Uskudar is too much south.
On the contrary all lines outside the ring are totally schematic and work mostly as a station list.

Marmaray - which is the suburban railway, that connects Europe with Asia.
Today only few stations are operating with the only one intercontinental underground/underwater part. We could say its kind of intercontinental metro line
Here the entrance at railway station

At the station, which seems to be extremly deep, there are huge artworks
