Very interesting lightrail! It looks like a stadtbahn too me with all the right-of-way sections. Are there any underground sections and how long are the elevated sections we could see on one of the photos?

ISTANBUL | METRO & SUBWAY

The subway system in Istanbul was initiated in 1992 and was completed in 2000. The first line between Taksim and 4th Levent went into service on September 16, 2000. This line is 8.5 km long and has 6 stations. All stations look similar but are in different colors. Currently there are 8 French built 4-car trains in service, which run every 5 minutes on average and transport 130,000 passengers daily. A trip along the entire line takes 12 minutes. The entire subway was built by the cut-and-cover method to withstand an earthquake of up to 9.0 on the Richter magnitude scale (Metro stations are: 4.Levent, Levent, Gayrettepe, Şişli, Osmanbey, Taksim)


The northern extension from 4th Levent to Ayazağa is expected to be completed in late 2010. The southern section of the metro from Taksim to Yenikapı, crossing the Golden Horn on a bridge and underground through the old city, is under construction with a tentative completion date of 2012. It will be 5.4 km long with 4 stations. At Yenikapı, it will intersect with the extended light metro, the suburban train lines and seabusses.

Lines under construction

22 km long Otogar-Bağcılar-Başakşehir-Olimpiyat Stadı metro line is expected to be completed in 2011.

On the Asian side, a 22 km long new metro line from Kadıköy to Kartal is under construction and scheduled to open in 2012, while the first branch between Kadiköy and Kozyatagi is opening by the end of 2010.

A new underwater tunnel project, Marmaray, is being built to connect the European and Asian sides of the city, joining both the Banlieue Train Systems to create a line connecting Halkali with Gebze, a total of 76,3 km in 105 minutes. This system will cross the Bosporus Straits in an immersed tube tunnel to also connect both Central Stations Ibrahimaga (Asian) and Sirkeci (European). This system will have several transfer stations to the extended Metro system, Light rail, Havaray and Seabusses.

Very nice system!

I saw it in 2006, it looks like American instead of European, mainly the trains.

^ Caracas metro system share the same trains model you in Istambul have got. Blame Alstom (France), for such great vehicles.

What do you mean by they dont look european? So the parisian MF77 should not look european to you, as both of them have been designed at the same time (same angle shape as you can see on the picture), the MF77 for Paris and an other wider one originally for Tehran.

What you call the light rail looks like a conventional metro to me.

It's a light rail anyway because this rolling stock was used in the street on the tram line before Istanbul get "real" tram rolling stock. Istanbul had ordered the same rolling stock for the tram line and the light rail to lower the cost.
