Taksim Kabataş: Funicular is a rail transportation vehicle. On a slope like a mountain or hill, it works by pulling the ropes upwards. Simultaneous use of two separate vehicles works with the principle that the wagons affect each as a counterweight.
The tow rope is drawn by a pulley running on electric motors and redactors. Stretching rope system is located in the lower station. Thus, the vehicles are moving within the boundaries along the line. In the funicular system, there are two parallel rails in the middle of the line. After the vehicles cross side by side in the middle of the line and have reached a certain distance, these two lines are connected to one station and reach the stations.
The first application in our country 29 has been funicular between Taksim and Kabataş which opened in June 2006.
