Gebze Haydarpaşa Banliyo Closes: The rumor that the Haydarpaşa Gebze line will be closed on March 1, 2012 in all local newspapers in Gebze, Kocaeli continues to confuse the passengers. There is no information on the subject on the official website of TCDD.
Within the scope of the High Speed Train Project to be implemented between Ankara and Istanbul, TCDD stopped intercity train services, and then TCDD increased the number and frequency of suburban trains on February 4, 2012.
However, it is said in local newspapers that "this application will not last long" and it is stated that this information was obtained from TCDD officials. The only information about the line on the TCDD website is as follows:
With a new arrangement, Haydarpaşa - Gebze suburban trains will be increased from 04.02.2012 to 121 trips per day, starting from 180, and will be operated with 10 minutes in the morning and evening passengers and 15 minutes in other hours.
