YHT tickets run out for days of sacrifice Feast: YHT voyages 2-3 October and 7-8 October due to the Feast of Sacrifice tickets were reported to run out.
It was reported that the High Speed Train (YHT), which is the leading transportation choice of the citizens, was sold out between 2-3 October and 7-8 October. According to the information received from TCDD officials, YHTs have become the first transportation mediators that come to mind in terms of passengers because they are fast and comfortable in Ankara, Istanbul, Eskişehir and Konya lines. In YHTs, tickets that are put on sale 20 days before the holiday do not contain any vacancies except for refund and passenger change. Those who leave vacation planning to the last day will evaluate alternative means of transportation. YHTs will carry approximately 12 thousand passengers per day in a total of 10 flights, 14 between Ankara and Istanbul, 4 between Eskişehir-Ankara, 40 between Ankara-Konya and 17 between Eskişehir-Konya. Approximately 4 thousand people are expected to travel by YHT in a 70-day period before and after the Bayram. Eskişehir Station Manager Süleyman Hilmi Özer said that before the Ankara-Eskişehir YHT line was opened in 2009, 78 percent of the access between the two cities was provided by road. Stating that YHT attracts a lot of attention from the citizens due to its speed and comfort, Özer said: “According to the data we have, YHT has become a passenger mediator, who has received great interest in terms of passengers on the Ankara and Istanbul lines. Currently, 72 percent of the passengers on the Eskişehir-Ankara line are on high-speed trains. The highway used to be in these numbers, now the pointer is reversed. If the citizen cannot find a place from us, he looks at other means of transportation. Bayram tickets were on sale 20 days ago. Those who plan early have a good chance of finding a place. Vacation leave the transportation bill would suffer in the last few days. "The world's fastest train operated by explaining that the occupancy rate remained at 60 percent in countries Ozer," working with yht occupancy rate of 90 percent in Turkey. Due to the intense interest of citizens in YHT, TCDD is also making plans. "We will try to respond to the demands with the new YHT sets to be purchased next year."
