“One of our most important projects is 'Park Continue'. With this project, we aim to reduce vehicle traffic in the city and provide an environmentally friendly transportation service by directing vehicle users to public transportation and rail systems. We identified 54 stations out of 26 stations in Ankara Metro. Among these, we chose 2 stations as the pilot area. The first of these was the National Library Station. The parking lot here has been empty since 2014. We will open this place on February 12th. In the Macunköy Station, which was selected within the scope of the second pilot region, the Department of Science Affairs will soon be tendered. We expect tenders for other stations during the year as well. "


While the works are being accelerated to arrange and open the parking lots at or near the Rail System stations, passengers using the metro will benefit from the parking lot free of charge.

In the project, which will relieve the urban traffic, a paid tariff system will be applied for citizens who use the car park only for parking. ANKARAKART will be used for parking exit turnstiles over the full boarding.


Drivers will enter the entrance turnstile at the entrance of the car park by scanning their ANKARAKART, which they will use in the rail system collective vehicles, and pass through the stations by paying a boarding fee.

On the day of entry to the parking lot, if the return is made in accordance with the hours of the rail systems, free passage will be provided through the exit turnstile. You can benefit from free use not only in one way but also in two-way and non-stop transportation. Passengers making one-way transportation will be deducted from the parking fee.

Vehicles remaining in the days following the day of entering the parking lot will pay a fee for the day and hour of their stay. Since registration cannot be created with credit cards or NFC phones, only ANKARAKART can be paid.

The fee schedule to be applied to passengers who will only use the Park & ​​Continue system as a car park is as follows:
