What do you think about building more tram lines in the suburbs Arda? Especially light rails like T4 which will be useful if they extend to Vezneciler. To link suburbs with low density like Başakşehir I think it could be a nice idea instead of M3. And I like networks with trams and metro working well together :p

Tram is really important but unfortunately roads of İstanbul didn't designed for them. There is no enough space to build a tram.

But I'm sure that in Anatolian Side, Sahil Yolu (Cemil Topuzlu St.) and Bağdat Avenue needs something more than bus and dolmuş.
Still, there is no enough space.
Maybe an underground tram or LRT can be built.

Also Minibüs Yolu needs an underground LRT, the municipality planing to built a monorail on this route but refuge is really nice place for trees so I'm a bit doubtful about building a monorail.

You mean they would have to cut the trees if they wanted to build a monorail here?
It is funny because I was not really thinking about the same lines. Well I have interest in this line (friends living there) so I'm not completely objective, but I imagined a tram following Hurriyet bulvarı in Başakşehir (connexion with M3 close to olympic stadium) Halkalı İkitelli Caddesi (arenapark and Atakent Mahallesi), then following Halkalı Caddesi and finally Mahmutbey caddesi (connexion to M3 close to Yenimahale) to its end at Ataköy Şirinevler metrobüs and metro station. Road seems to me large, and it would increase maybe ridership to M1 and M3 and also ease access to metrobüs. I have many friends living there and they prefer to take metrobüs than M3 M1 M2 to go center especially Levent or Taksin. And of course would justify more after M3 going to Bakırköy).
Also, I was thinking about connecting Gülbağar mahallesi in its main road (Sanayı Caddesi - Okul Caddesi - Yeşilce Caddesi - Galata Deresi CAddesi - Zincirlidere Caddesi) following the valley (if I remember well, flat enough for a tramway) to Gayrettepe or Levent, and make the Beyoğlu Şişli network better by trying a LRT under Piyalepaşa Bulvarı. Maybe it seems unrealistic but I think these roads are larger than Asian side.

Excellent choice for the future everything should be reachable between Anatolian and European side with maximum 2 interchanges.

Question:
Will there be a train station(s) that will be built beside or near the most expensive hotels in Turkey? (e.g. Ciragan Palace Kempinski, Ritz Carlton Istanbul, Hilton Bosphrous, Four Seasons Istanbul, etc.)

Thank you

If you mean "train" Yenikapı is close to hotels in Sultanahmet such as Four Seasons, some trains stations also close to luxurious hotels in Anatolian side.

But if you also count metro, than Taksim, Osmanbey, Gayrettepe and 4th Levent is great.

Also there will be Beşiktaş station in the future, which is close to Shangri-La and Çırağan.

To be more wide at seats level and get more wide corridor between seats for standing passengers.
It also uses better the circular section of tunnels (like some Tube rolling stock in London )

The diagram below depicts some of Istanbul metro lines which are operational, under construction or still in planning stage.


Like other world’s major cities, I believe Istanbul metro network requires a loop line which encircles the core of the city. To achieve this purpose, a short 4-km extension linking VEZNECILER-MERCAN-SIRKECI-TOPHANE-KABATAS would give Istanbul its loop line.


Examples of loop line in other major cities:
Circle line in London
Koltsevaya line Moscow
Oedo line in Tokyo
Line4 line in Shanghai
Circle line in Singapore
MRT3 line (planned) in Kuala Lumpur
.

Hello. Has someone heard about the official expectation of ridership on the line currently being built or expanded?
