Bursa gained 31 kilometers of active rail system with these lines. In addition, we decided to solve the transportation within the city center by rail systems. We have started the city lines with the 4-kilometer Cumhuriyet Street-Davutkadı tram line. We are planning to finish the Bursaray-Kestel line this year, although this period is not on schedule. In this way, it will have reached the length of the rail system that it lost 43 years in total with 59 kilometers. We will resolve the transportation issue within the city center. For this, works continue on the 6,5-kilometer Sculpture-Garage tram line. Rail laying is completed on most of the main streets on the route. We aim to open the T1 line in summer months. ”
