After the Ankara-Eskişehir high-speed train line, which was added to our country, Ankara-Konya, Konya-Eskişehir, Eskişehir-İstanbul and İstanbul-Konya lines were opened and our country became one of the few countries of the world in the high-speed train transportation. YHT lines carried millions. This is a testament to how long our citizens are staring at the fast train. For this reason, we have begun to work on knitting all over the country with high speed train networks. We are linking our many cities with the fast train lines that are under construction and planned to be constructed. In this context, the Ankara-Izmir YHT line that we started has an important place among these projects.

With our capital Ankara, we will connect Izmir, the capital of our country to the west, and the capital of economy and tourism. We will reduce the travel time between two cities to 3,5 hours.
