“Nostalgia tram is old. "We are thinking of removing it and buying narrower buses that run hybrid on the same route."
Akaydın stated that they will extend the old tram line where narrow buses are planned to be used, and that the new line will also include Antalya Education and Research Hospital, Akdeniz University, Antalya Courthouse and Antalya Intercity Terminal. Akaydın stated that the subject of making the overpass on Hürriyet Street north of the medical school with an elevator was included in the investment program.
