This is international thread, so you should write in English

And we can't see your photos because they're hosted on wowturkey.

Istanbul to build monorail system:
Quote:
Istanbul has tried to combat its notorious traffic levels with nearly every type of public transport under the sun – buses, metrobuses, suburban and subway trains, trams, funiculars, cable cars, ferries, sea taxis, and the ever-popular shared taxi vans known as dolmush – but all to little avail. The city regularly tops road congestion rankings in Europe and beyond.

Now, for its latest projects, the city municipality has decided that the sky is no longer the limit.

Eight monorail lines will connect a number of neighbourhoods on both the European and Asian sides of the city, carrying 200,000 passengers a day. When completed, the 47 km-long system, called the Havaray, will be the first major monorail system in Europe.

Quote:
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality has annouced the start date of the tender bids for the Tuzla Monorail Project which aims to relieve the city's congested traffic. The Municipality's Transportation Planning Department has annouced the bids will begin on February 2, 2015.

The completion time for the project, which will go through a large scale tender bid, is attached to the conditions as 240 days. The monorail project will start its construction in Tuzla district of Istanbul, in the Anatolian side.

Sorry to ask this but how many urban train line does istanbul have? I visited istanbul last year and I only take 1 tram line to cross the bridge and also 1 world 2nd oldest underground line which I think is for tourist purpose. I don't remember istanbul have lots of metro line coz if not mistaken I only see 1 tram line on the map. >.<

Also I think Istanbul is a very beautiful city. I would like to visit turkey again since I only spent 6 days at there 3 days at capadocia (the hot air ballon is nice) and 3 days at Istanbul. Btw I think the tram line in the middle of road are kinda dangerous. Ppl need to cross the road to get into the tram. But luckily the driver there are in good manner. :p

Istanbul opens Line M6
20 Apr 2015







TURKEY: President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Mayor Kadir Topbaş attended the opening of Istanbul metro’s Line M6 at 17.00 on April 19.

The 3·3 km line runs east from Levent station on Line M2 to Boğaziçi Üniversitesi/Rumeli Hisarüstü with two intermediate stations. The line has an initial capacity of 8 100 passengers/h per direction.

The latest opening forms part of a plan to expand the Istanbul metro and tram network to 430 km by 2019

This is Istanbul's so-called mini-metro, a single track line with two to three coaches and just 4 stops. This peculiar solution had been chosen to connect one of the major universities which so-far could only be reached through a very congested road built as part of 1950s suburban development. As the university is on a cliff over the Bosporus, the metro line could not be extended beyond without large expenses and possibly damaging the Bosporus silhouette.
The mayor has also announced that two metro extensions and two new lines will be built soon. Unfortunately with the exception of the Kabatas-Mecidyeköy extension, these lines are all rather isolated solutions for suburbs and do not alleviate traffic in the central districts.

I cannot be called an Istanbul expert. Yet I think I can say that the priority of the municipality (if I assume that the main state is not going to work on the first priority of Turkey, which is to offer equal economic developpement for the all country, in order to avoid immigration to Istanbul) is to offer to all growing suburbs heavy transportation systems to lead all these people from their home to their work.
If Istanbul had already a great suburban railway system they could use, it would indeed be wise to develop a dense metro system in the center, but even this suburban is to be built, through the Marmaray extension on both sides, and it is not sufficient to provide transportation for everyone, so that they need to build M5 to bring people from Ümraniye to Marmaray system, or M7 to replace Marmaray East-West axis in the north of european side.
When these first steps are made, I presume that many people from these areas, at least those who are rich enough to have a car, whom had no choice but to take the car to join the central district, are going to use the metro system instead of their car.
There is just one line I don't see the point, the one between Ataköy and İkitelli, but probably experts of Istanbul can help me on that.
Traffic problem has to be solved by the basis first in my opinion, and then in micro gestion of the center.


Also, the transportation system in the city centerS is already pretty cool for me : The old peninsula is already nicely reachable by metro or tram, the area of Şişli beyoğlu Beşiktaş is going to be upgraded as well with M7, just on the western part will be missing something, but the distance between M2 and MB seems to me too small to make a heavy transport really necessary (and even I think they proposed something along Piyalepaşa bulvarı). Levent and Maslak are both reachable by M2. Kadıköy is also reachable by vapur IDO or metro (new Dudullu Bostancı will help my friend staying around Dudullu to reach Kadıköy), Bakırköy will be crossed by extension of M3, and will be reachable by both M1 and Marmaray.

Which part would you, who know Istanbul more than me, build?

It looks M6 is a heavy metro line like M2 & M4, but due to short route length, is uses only four coach trains.

M1 is definitely a light metro or light rail line, just like T4. What is about M3? Is it light like M1? or heavy like M2/M4/M6.

What kind of metro will be in future for M5, M7 & M8? light or heavy?

actually M6 was named as MiniMetro first but due to political doubts its named as M6 which means it is a real line rather than branch of M2.

M3 is heavy as M2, M4 etc.

Future metros will be heavy metro for now.
I don't know any plan to built a LRT.

Yes, M1, T1, T4 can exchange wagons amongst each other due to same width and overhead catenary.
M3 and 4 are as wide as M2 and thus high capacity, despite using overhead catenary like a tram.
The Üsküdar metro will have a capacity slightly lower than M2-4, probably due to 6 car trains, rather than 4+4 trains. The metro to Mahmutbey should be large capacity like M2-4. The mini metro to Levent will be mini, but apparently fitted for wide wagons but short (3?4?) I forget.
Thanks to all my Turkish friends for clearing my confusion. At last it is clear for me that-

M1 & T4 are light rail lines.
M2, M3, M4 & M6 are metro lines.
T1, T3 & T5 are tram lines.

Baron, do you remember the reason for that?
Because of platform length or train length?

I think they could name M6 M1 bis actually like we have in Paris some lines linking specific places unreachable with common lines. It would be more clear. But they cannot use anymore hafif metro or mini métro names I think.
M1 transformation into a heavy metro is hard as I understood from Baron hirsh but maybe they could at least buy new trains to make the journey more confortable.

Yandex Metro app released new map - Istanbul transport map (metro, trams, Marmaray, BRT). Unfortunately, all explanations of service changes are in Turkish:

Ankara was better a decade ago, but thanks to its lazy mayor who is currently making dino sculptures, İstanbul and even İzmir is better today.
