Izmir Economic Development Coordination Board members traveled by tram to the March meeting to be held at the Gas Factory. Making a statement at the meeting, Mayor Kocaoğlu said, “An adaptation period must pass. "At the end of this process, we will pull 100-150 buses running parallel to the tram line."
Buses will be taken from the tram route
Stating that the trips will become more frequent after the pre-operation in the tram, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu said, “An adjustment period must pass. At the end of this process, we will pull 100-150 buses running parallel on the tram line. This will ease the traffic, ”he said. Stating that they will hold the second stage tender of Narlıdere metro in the coming days, Mayor Kocaoğlu said that this will be followed by the Buca metro project.
He stated that each of the rail system lines brought about the need for other lines, and that the rail system would become increasingly common to capillaries, and the Mayor of the Metropolitan Municipality said:
“The essence of the matter is this: 14 years ago, the rail system was carrying 70-80 thousand people. Today, we will exceed 800 thousand with Konak Tram. If TCDD accepts our proposal in İZBAN, it is possible to easily increase this number to 1 million 200 thousand. But we cannot agree on both signaling and decommissioning of regional trains. "
