The construction purpose of the project; In order to develop solutions for the transportation problems of Istanbul, providing the integration between public transportation systems, bringing the rail system together with the sea, increasing the share of maritime transportation in daily travels, ensuring the integration of the tram and the metro, and using the systems more efficiently. With station Kabataş It is a necessity to install a rail mass transit system between the pier.
Improvisation-Kabataş Funicular System Construction, an important sea transfer center with Taksim Station of the Istanbul Metro Taksim- 4. Levent line, which has been put into operation before. KabataşIt is the construction of a public transportation system that will provide the connection between the sea pier and tram transportation in.
With this project, Taksim-4.Levent (Ayazağa-Yenikapı) Metro, which is currently in service, Taksim-Tunnel Nostalgic Tram, Taksim Bus and Dolmus Stations and Zeytinburnu-Fındıklı (Kabataş- Bağcılar) Tramway, Kabataş By providing integration between İDO ferry, ferry and sea bus piers, it is possible to reach Taksim Metro and Istanbul Metro from the airport of Istanbul residents only. Kabataş/ Access to regions where sea transportation vehicles such as Beşiktaş are used extensively.
Improvisation-Kabataş The Funicular System, the metro from Taksim to 4. Levent. Kabataş –Züyükburnu Cadde Tramway and Aksaray-Airport combined with light metro lines. In this way, starting from 4.Levent, an uninterrupted rail system network was established to Atatürk Airport and Bus Terminal. The new system reduces the traffic load of Gümüşsuyu, while the ferry and sea bus pier, bus line and tram line intersect. Kabataşmakes it an important transfer hub.
131 21 is one of the few examples in the world. This project is one of the few examples in the world. It has the feature of being equipped with architectural designs that are worthy of the century concept.
“The first trial expedition” was held on 5 January 2006 by Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Mr. Kadir Topbaş.Kabataş The Funicular System was held on Thursday, June 29, 2006 with the participation of our Prime Minister Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Istanbul Governor Mr. Muammer Güler and Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Mr. Kadir Topbaş. Kabataş It was opened to the service of our people with a ceremony held in front of the IDO Pier.

Also by sea or tram KabataşPassengers arriving to Istanbul can reach Taksim and the metro from Taksim to Ayazağa on the one hand and the bus and airport on the other.
Improvisation-Kabataş The most important factor in determining the characteristics of the rail system to be installed in the area between was the maximum slope values since the line will be located on a very sloping terrain. In this framework, in order to determine the most suitable system for the line, the effect of the slope on the system was first examined. The recommended optimum slope of the line is around 22%. In the comparison made between various rail system types, it was determined that the Funicular System is the safest and the most economical system in terms of investment / maintenance costs that can operate at such a high slope.
Funicular System, Taksim and Kabataş It consists of 2 stations. Taksim station, Istanbul Metro with Taksim station Kabataş station in Zeytinburnu-Kabataş the tram Kabataş It is connected with the station.
System, Taksim and Kabataş It consists of two terminals as two stations and two cars with double carriages that move with ropes mutually. 3 m. In the tunnel, the journey takes 640 seconds. Currently, an average of 110 people are transported daily with the system.
