IETT's Pendik-Haydarpaşa commuter route expedition
Pendik - Sogutlucesme - Haydarpasa Commuter Train Line Under the scope of improvement works due to Marmaray Project, 19 is closed for 24 month (2 Year) period in June. IETT increases the number of current voyages in order to prevent the commuter passengers from being victimized with the closing of the line.
As the construction works will be started for the project of improving the suburban lines and stations of Pendik-Söğütlüçeşme-Haydarpaşa, which will provide a better quality and modern urban transportation, the number of buses and number of buses will be increased by reinforcing the existing lines of IETT which serves on this route.
When the Marmaray Project is completed, Gebze-Halkalı 75 thousand passengers will be moved at an hour. Every day the travel time of over one million people will be shortened. Bostanci-Bakirkoy between 37 minutes, Gebze-Halkalı 105 minutes between the Söğütlüçeşme-Yenikapı 12 minutes and Üsküdar-Sirkeci will be only three minutes between.
