“However, although we work with the same frequency, we think that 300-350 thousand people travel a day. We are constantly traveling on trains. Our citizens are very satisfied. They constantly pray and thank you. Some citizens give advice, sometimes even a little. Our citizens, who express that they have crossed two continents in a short time, are quite satisfied and happy with the situation. We see that tourists are also interested in the system. They especially visit our Yenikapı station and examine the very important works exhibited. Of course, we, as railroaders, thank our Prime Minister and Minister. Indeed, a very important work in the world and in Turkey. It is impossible not to see the value of this, we really see it in our people. We can read this satisfaction because of our people. "
"Useful for the disabled"

Expressing their excitement, Akkaya said, “It is a proud project for a unique brand city like Istanbul. Since it is the first day, there is an unavoidable intensity, but in the coming days, I believe it will improve. Good things will happen. I sat in Kavacık for a while. We could not cross between the two continents because of fog. Citizens will no longer experience this. In a short time, people will go a long distance ”.
