History of Tram in Istanbul
While Istanbul was the capital of the Ottoman Empire, there were two major tram networks on the Asian and European sides. The lines that first started as horse-drawn tramways and in time changed their place with electric tram and Istanbul Electric Tram and Tunnel operation (İETT) was established. The tram lines, which were built step by step over the years, experienced peaks in 1956 with 56 or 270 trains and 108 million passengers. In the 1960s, after the May 27 revolution, the tram service in the city began to shut down, and in 1966 it was completely stopped. The lines were dismantled and roads were built instead of motor vehicles that could move faster and faster in the conditions of that day.
