Istanbul is left behind in rail systems: Head of ITU Rail Systems Engineering Department Dr. Mehmet Turan Söylemez pointed out that 3.5 million in London a day, 4.5 million in Paris, and 8.7 million people in Tokyo are using metro and rail systems.
Traffic in Istanbul, which is the biggest savior of Istanbul, thanks to the at least 250 thousand vehicles were prevented from traffic. In order to reveal the differences between the dimensions of traffic congestion in the main arteries and the differences between the periods, the 'Istanbul Traffic Authority' study aims to relieve the traffic that is planned to be re-interrogated with the investments planned for the subway. Considering the general transportation types, it is stated that the land transportation is in the first place. Dr. Mehmet Turan Söylemez, this order is followed by the rail system, the sea transport is the last place, he said. In Istanbul, where heavy traffic is dominated, underlining that encouraging citizens to rail systems is extremely important. Dr. Söylemez said: ıla The significant relief of Istanbul traffic is through the use of public transportation vehicles by citizens. However, many people come to traffic with their own vehicle. According to the data obtained by the metro and rail systems 60 million 40 thousand people per day is used. This means that thanks to the subway, at least 1 vehicles are prevented from getting into the traffic. The more this number increases, the more comfortable Istanbul traffic is. In addition, with the increase of the use of metro and rail systems, the fuel costs of cities are also reduced. Thus, the citizen earns both time and money. Bö
The cost of delay in traffic is large
The annual cost of the delay in traffic is around 6.5 billion TL. Dr. Söylemez emphasized that increasing the use of metro in Istanbul would be the only solution for Istanbul traffic. Looking around the world in London, the metro and rail systems are used by 3 million 500 thousand people per day. Dr. Mehmet Turan Söylemez stated that this figure is 4 million 500 thousand in Paris and 8 million 700 people are using metro and rail systems in Tokyo.
