  1. In this context, the integrated station project (just like the integrated station and dock in Bandırma port) should be started to the dock of the sea buses and ferries going from Mersin port to Famagusta and Kyrenia. Thus, an integrated transportation system alternative to the airline between Istanbul and Ankara will be built. Sea buses that can speed up to 60 nm can be commissioned for fast transportation at sea. In this case, it will be possible to reach Cyprus by rail and sea from Istanbul and Ankara for periods that can compete with airline.
