BURSA | Public Transport

In Turkey, after Antalya, Bursa has opened another tram system, which is old style. When the light rail of Bursa is trendy and first, the tram is although slow, but very much nostalgic/romantic.

Bursa Tram is an old style system, with high floor, and bow collector. It suns through the old city area with a nostalgic view, as I know, however please confirm.

There is a Photo



POST AS MANY AS PHOTOS OF BURSA TRAM HERE, ALSO A MAP IS REQUIRED.

Konya and İstanbul also have nostalgic tram and Samsun, Gaziantep, Eskişehir and İstanbul have modern trams.

Antalya have both like İstanbul.

Thanks for the link, but It is in turkish, which I can't read.

However, I saw a different model of Bursa tram, which don't match with the above photos. Are there two different types of rolling stock? Please clear my confusion.

This is active nostalgic line, and the vehicles that you showed also work in this line I think, bu t I'm not sure.


This is the line which is U/C now,


And new Turkish made vehicles (named İpekböceği) will work in this line,


This is Bursaray LRT line,

So you mean there are two types of rolling stock (old small & new large) running on the current line?

And the extension will use that red tram?

Will those two lines be connected? or seperate? When will it open for public?

Please try to answer these -
1) Reserved or unreserved, - which type of track layout is common in Anren tramway network?
2) Which is the busiest tram terminus?
3) Where is/are the depot(s) of the tramway network?

Like Antalya, Bursa also opened two types of tram lines, one are a bit old, another is new and trendy.

The New tram route T1 is a circular route, old tram route T3 crosses it at Cancilar.

By the way, where is the T2, is there any plan for this? What it will be? old style or new style line?

Hello Mitra, just asked myself the same question. Found out that T2 is to be the number of a tram line from the city center heading straight north for 10 km to the intercity bus station. There are several other planned tram lines, see http://www.ulasimturkiye.com/viewtop...1a0b698e3349d1 (maps at the middle of the page).

Bursa issues tender for 72 LRVs
Monday, February 02, 2015



BURSA Metropolitan Municipality has issued a tender notice for a contract to supply 60 LRVs for the BursaRay light metro network and a further 12 vehicles for street-running tram lines in the Turkish city

The tender stipulates that bidders must have capacity to supply at least 24 vehicles per year with a minimum of 60% domestic content. The supplier will also need to deliver at least two vehicles of each type within just six months of contract signing. This would appear to favour local manufacturer Durmazlar, which displayed its Silkworm and Green City vehicles at InnoTrans in Berlin last September
