Konya with YHT: Polatlılar, who come to Konya with the High Speed Train (YHT) thanks to the project prepared by the central Selçuklu District Municipality of Konya, visit the historical and tourist places of the city.
Selçuklu Municipality, which enabled the residents to get to know Konya more closely with the 'I Know My City' project 2 years ago, expanded the scope of the project with the start of YHT flights between Ankara and Konya. With the support of the Ministry of Transportation, 90 people come to Konya every day for 46 days with YHT from Polatlı and will visit the city with a professional guide, and return to Polatlı with YHT at the end of the same day.
Within the scope of the project, the group including Polatlı Mayor Yakup Çelik came to Konya. Welcomed by the Seljuk Mayor Uğur İbrahim Altay at the Konya Train Station, the group visited Mayor Altay in his office at the end of his Konya trip.
Mayor Altay stated that 5 people coming from Polatlı will know Konya thanks to the project and said, “Konya has been the capital of the Seljuks for 200 years. Konya, which has been the most capital city after Istanbul, has many historical values. Hz. We try to serve the city of Mevlana in a way that suits. You leave here with good memories and you become an honorary citizen of Konya. I know how bad the road between Polatlı and Konya is and how long it is. This time was shortened and became comfortable with YHT. ”
Expressing that they have taken Konya to 10 people thanks to the 'I Know My City' project, Altay said, “We realized that people living in Konya did not know their cities and we organized these trips with a professional guide. When such a proposal came from Polatlı, we increased the number of buses and organize our trips. We organize the same trips with the Municipality of Keçiören within the framework of the sister city protocol. We will carry out these works with Eskişehir Odunpazarı Municipality when the YHT line goes into service. ”
Polatlı Mayor Yakup Çelik stated that the first group came to Konya on April 24 and thought that these trips made significant contributions to Polatlı in terms of urbanism. Mayor Çelik thanked those who contributed to the project. Yalçın Tekkalmaz, TCDD Konya Train Station Manager, noted that 70 minutes can be reached from Konya to Polatlı by YHT.
At the end of the visit, Seljuk Mayor Uğur İbrahim Altay gave tile plates to Polatlı Mayor Yakup Çelik. The guests from Polatlı were gifted from Selçuklu Municipality publications.
