What i dislike on Istanbul transport system is the lack on connections between lines in the city center.
The interchange from one line to another is a nightmare. If you look at the map - it looks awesome.
[IMG]http://i62.************/28jxjqf.jpg[/IMG]
But if you really try to change lines there... Especialy transfering from tram to metro is a joke. The more - Aksaray Metro station isnt the Aksaray tram stop. Confusing.
I actually hate this particulary station the most. Going up and down, then again, crossing streets and walking some 500m.

And the weirdest station ever - on the bridge, in the middle of ...
the river. Far away from one saide and far from another
But with the nice view of the city.

I will be visiting Istanbul finally next year, can't wait. Have heard good things about it, judging by how little childish graffiti you have you must be a much more civilized people than most Europeans.

Metro lines in Turkey are operated by midnight, 00:00. If you arrive after that time, you better take the taxi. If you arrive at the airport around 23:00, it will take about 30 minutes to go out of airport due to passport control and stuff. So, you can take M1 car to yenikapi but once you arrive to yenikapı it will be to late to take train anyway.

So, if i were in your shoes, i would take havatas bus to go to taksim and then take "sari dolmus" minibus (yellow ones and they operate 7/24) to go to kadıköy and once i arrive there, i would take taksi to go to kozyatagi.

It would cost about 8 TL for havatas bus, 8 TL for minibus and around 20 TL so in total, it would be 36 TL ( nearly 13 euro ).

dont take taksi from the airport they usually overcharge.
Take Hatavaş as Shell said,
From Taksim yellow dolmuş's are nice choice because bus' frequencies are rare.
From Kadıköy, Taksi to Kozyatağı should cost around 10-12.

but can you tell me the full name of your hotel,
because I didn't find any Ramada in or around Kozyatağı: https://www.google.com/maps/search/r...29.0379594,12z

Okay then,
Havataş,
Dolmuş,
and Taxi is still the best choice.

Tell Marriott near Kozyatağı Carrefour to the driver.
And check taximeter frequently,
few days ago one of my friends overcharged.

MISSING LINK COMPLETED IN ISTANBUL’S RAIL NETWORK



ISTANBUL — The Aksaray-Yenikapı rail line has been completed, connecting the most important missing link in Istanbul's rail network and transportation system. A ceremony taking place on Sunday morning will officially mark the opening of the line.

The line, which is only 700 meters long, connects M1A and M1B lines, leading from Aksaray to Atatürk Airport and the populous Bağcılar district, to Yenikapı Station, which is one of the stations of the cross-Bosporus Marmaray line on the east-west axis and the terminus of M2 Yenikapı-Hacıosman line on north-south axis.

This connection will enable Istanbulites to commute directly by rail to Atatürk Airport and the Coach Station from commercial districts along M2 line, such as Maslak, Levent, Şişli and Taksim. Commuters from Istanbul's Asian side will also be able to reach Atatürk Airport via rail network.

The journey time from Atatürk Airport to Kartal on the M4 line, one of Istanbul's easternmost districts, is estimated to be 81 minutes.

M1A and M1B lines also facilitate connection with M3 Kirazlı – Başakşehir and T4 Topkapı – Mescid-i Selam lines, leading to Istanbul's northwestern districts.

Located on Istanbul's historic peninsula on European side, the construction of Yenikapı Transfer Station and its connections was delayed for four years due to its location on top of an important archeological site, which is believed to be an old port. The port, which was found during the excavations along with shipwrecks, is believed to date back to fifth century. The findings from the site provided significant information which proved that the city has an 8,500 year old history.

As of 2014, Istanbul has a 142 kilometer long rail network. With 109 kilometers under construction, the network is projected to expand to 430 kilometers by 2019.

ISTANBUL’S ASIAN AND EUROPEAN METROS LINK UP



ISTANBUL — The metro line built between Aksaray and Yenikapı, which connects the Marmaray underwater tunnel at Yenikapı with the metro line of the European side of Istanbul, opened yesterday at a ceremony attended by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu.

The Marmaray, which is already linked to the metro line on the Asian side, was inaugurated last year. The link opened yesterday will connect the lines on both sides of Istanbul. A person in Kartal on the Anatolian side will be able to travel to Atatürk International Airport on the European side in 81 minutes by using only railway transport. With the Aksaray-Yenikapı metro line, passengers in Yenikapı will be able to travel to Taksim with a single transfer.

According to municipal officials, travel time between Yenikapı and Atatürk airport will be 36 minutes, Taksim to the airport 43.5 minutes, Mahmutbey to Üsküdar 44.5 minutes and Bağcılar to Kadıköy 45.5 minutes. Davutoğlu, speaking at the opening ceremony, said Istanbul currently had 141 kilometers of metro lines, to be increased to 430 milometers by 2019. The prime minister also said that Istanbul, a city with an ancient heritage, needs public transportation to be underground in order to protect and preserve the historical heritage above ground and that the government is committed to easing the traffic burden in the city.

We have made a lot of fun about this actually. In what other country with 70 million inhabitants would a single metro stop inauguration be postponed for months just for the prime minister to appear at the inauguration?
The 700 meter extention took over a decade. Yes there were important reasons for it, but as Arda says, nothing to be so proud of.
The 431 km by 2019 are a lie. 70 km of those are the refurbishing of the ral line that has existed since the 1870s. Renovating lines cannot be counted as building new ones. Also the time schedule presupposed that construction of several lines would have started this year, but no tneder has been announced for them. Most of these lines have been on the drawing board for several decades, but nothing has happened. Only one tender for 9 km has been announced for a 9 km extension.
Taking all that into account, I am willing to bet anyone that there will not be more than a 70 km extension of metro in Istanbul by 2019, which is of course not bad, but nowhere near the present propaganda promises.

Istanbul orders Hyundai Rotem metro trains
Monday, January 05, 2015



ISTANBUL Metropolitan Municipality has placed a Won 103.8bn ($US 93.3m) provisional order with Hyundai Rotem for the supply of 17 four-car metro trains that will boost capacity on Line M2 between Yenikapi and Haciosman

The new trains will complement the line's existing fleet of 23 four car Hyundai Rotem trains, which has experienced a spike in demand since the opening of the Marmaray tunnel for suburban services and the Line M1 interchange at Yenikapi. Demand is expected to continue to increase with the opening of Line M6 between Levent and Hisarüstü later this year.

Despite M2's signalling and existing rolling stock not yet supporting driverless operation, Hyundai Rotem will deliver vehicles suitable for conversion to UTO with a view to a future upgrade of the line. The new trains are due to be delivered in the second half of 2017.

Hyundai Rotem secured the order ahead of CNR Changchun, which reportedly offered a price 12% below Hyundai Rotem's bid. However, with the trains set to be produced at Hyundai Rotem's Turkish factory in Adana, it was able to overcome the cost difference to secure the contract, although with the official announcement yet to be made, CNR may seek an appeal against the decision
