IMM has built a new landing platform and stairs to reduce the passenger density at Altunizade Metrobus Station. With the opening of Yamanevler - Çekmeköy Metro, the number of passengers per day in Altunizade increased from 17 thousand to 35 thousand.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM), a subsidiary of the General Directorate of IETT Enterprises, in order to reduce the density of the station built an additional 300 square meters of landing platform.
In this way, the number of vehicles approaching the station was increased from 5 to 9. In addition, a new staircase was built in which passengers could walk out of the platform and reach the subway station. In addition, 5 tourniquets, 1 ticketmatic and 2 return validators were added to the station to ease the citizens' entry and exit.
Altunizade Metrobus Station started to serve 2 times more passengers last year with the introduction of Yamanevler - Çekmeköy Metro Line. With the metro line integrated into the station, the average number of passengers per day increased by 105 percent, from 17 thousand to 35 thousand. Due to the increase in passengers, the passenger waiting area and stairs of the station had become insufficient.
