CANNOT REALIZE A VERY KENT
It LRT be administered by some Metropolitan Municipality in Turkey, an alternative public transport system can not be carried out but planned by many provinces. Many cities planning the Light Rail System have State Planning Organization (DPT) and budget barriers. DPT, which does not permit the establishment of light rail systems in cities with a population of less than 500 thousand, is seen as the biggest obstacle in front of even cities with a population of approximately three times Salihli to realize the light rail system. The criterion of carrying 15 thousand passengers per hour in one direction is among the conditions of SPO. Investment costs and operating performance if the stretch of terms brought by a municipal light rail system in Turkey ready to use condition. While it is unlikely that the system can be implemented in Salihli, it is stated that the light rail system can be implemented by the Manisa Metropolitan Municipality, since Manisa is a Metropolitan and Salihli is connected to the Metropolitan Municipality.
