Definition of light rail is not about being underground or surface. Izmir has high capacity system partly overground. Bursa has meduim capacity system party underground, the same for Adana. No one says "I'm taking the light rail" but "I'm taking the metro"

As far as I know Ikarus buses are still a majority of all the buses in Turkish cities. Am I right?

At least in Istanbul, i do not think so. The city has been buying lots of state of the art Mercedes buses recently. Also, what is often forgotten, the municipal buses are a minority as far as overall public transport is concerned. While a considerable share is covered by ÍHO (a sub-contractor operating on the same lines as the municipal ones, with a mix of older Mercedes and Asian models), the share of people using mini-buses (rather rickety, small, uncomfortable Magirius Deutz usually) is almost as large as those using municipal buses. These, unfortunately, are still the reality for a large part of the population.

1.What is the current status of Kayseri, Samsun & Gazi Antep's tramway?

2.Are Alstom's low floor trams has started running in Istanbul?

2.Will Alstom's stock also be used in T4?

As far as I know it's only Istanbul that has high number of Ikarus buses in its fleet. Istanbul is investing very much in rail systems.

Here is a topic about renewed fleets of Turkish municipalities.

M2 has very modern stations, M1 has older stations because it's from the 80's.

being nice is something different than ebing modern. These station might be not nice for you but you cn't say they aren't modern.

There is no EU flag on Turkish plates. It's just blue without flags because Turkey is part of customs union.

I haven't seen the answers of those 3 questions in this or any other thread. If I should get the answers, I'm promising you that I'll never irritate you anymore.

Maybe I'm fool. Can anybody please answer me those 3 questions at least one time? Those are -
1.What is the current status of Kayseri, Samsun & Gazi Antep's tramway?
2.Are Alstom's low floor trams has started running in Istanbul?
2.Will Alstom's stock also be used in T4?

Then see http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=706116&page=2 (the Istanbul tram thread).
Once again, T4 is supposed to show off the first tram made in Turkey, called RTE 2009 (Railway Transport Equipment). However, as far as I have seen, it has not been introduced there yet, except for a ride during the elections.
As for T1/T2, the ordered trams of Alstom have been arriving little by little, but are not complete and have not been put to use yet.
As for the trams in the provinces, I have no idea.
