TURKEY | Public Transport Compilation

I decided to summurize the public transport in Turkey's 10 biggest cities. I added any kind of vehicle from buses to so-called "vapurs". If I compare the situation today and ten years ago... it's just unbelievable! 90% of that didn't exist. No subways, no trams, low quality old buses back then...

First a map with all cities with rail systems. Some of them like Gaziantep and Samsun aren't completed fully but works are still going on. I must admit I admire the development within the last 10 years. 10 years ago not even 30% of that existied. The three major cities Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and had opened their first lines but rest of the cities had never heard of subways or LRT. I differ between tram and LRT because tram is used in Eskisehir which isn't physically isolated from traffic whereas Samsum, Antalya have isolated systems and even go underground sometimes. So LRT is something in between subway and tram system.

Urban rail transit in Turkey

I opened a topic about urban transport in Turkey which included any type of vehicle but I think there should be also one focused on rail systems since there is a real boom concerning urban rail transit. Nearly all major cities build/still building
rail systems in the last 10 years. A nice development which may surprise some.
