It is not easy to protect the trams in Istiklal Street, which is the stop of protesters, tourists and students.
The timetables of the trams from the city's nostalgic symbols change frequently due to activist groups. The 9 patriarch, each of which has become a human figure, stops or postpones flights according to the activist groups.
The two tramways from Taksim and Tünel run from 7.00 to 23.00 in the morning. On normal days, the number of voyages is 40-45. Tramway Workshop Chief Gündüz Metiner says that the number of voyages has decreased when there is action on the street. Metin Metin, who has been working since 1990 when the nostalgic tram started to re-launch, tells us that they have become a human coaster over time. Stating that Taksim is a crowded place, Metiner said, tram Our trams are a little uneasy as they are a place where actions are constantly being made. Sometimes we don't go on time. If the group is crowded, we take it out of service to avoid any damage to the tram tram. Metiner stated that they did not stop the voyages in every action and said, prot When we were here for a long time, we became aware of the souls of the groups of protesters. What group does it, we know it and act according to it. Political groups, team supporters are doing the action immediately pull away. "He says. The trams, which are maintained every week, are a bit difficult to use, but Mehmet Görür, who has been living in the 14 for years, says that the biggest problem is the pedestrians. Tell the pedestrians walking on the tram, Görür said, “I am even calculating the next step of the pedestrian. Normally, we can go 10-15 at a maximum speed of 5 per kilometer, Normal he says.
