4800 passengers will be transported per hour
Currently, Gebze's situation is worse than Izmit in terms of transportation problem in our province. In Gebze, which is crowded very fast, the metro has become inevitable. The first subway system of our city between Darıca and GOSB will also be connected with Marmaray. The system is planned to serve 4800 passengers per day.
While Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality started the project works for Gebze Metro, the Ministry of Transport continues to undertake this very large project. Metro investments in cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and Konya were made by the Ministry from the general budget. Most likely, the project will be completed by the end of this year, the tender will be launched and the major project will be built by the Ministry.
