Stating that they started feasibility studies for the light rail system, which is the dream of the people of Van, Taşyapan said, “There is a much talked about rail system debate in the press. Of course, this rail system debate is in the press based on the pre-Republican history. The most important transportation system in metropolitan cities is of course the rail transportation system. So far, there is no system that passes this. We have decided to do a feasibility study with all that is about how important this is for our city. Rail systems are not profitable in cities of our size in the world. Rail systems are profitable in cities with a central population of at least 1 million. It can also be light rail systems. Our province is located in the basin of Lake Van. It is a province with much distance from one end to another. In this sense, we started a feasibility study. We will share this work with the public and our press. We stand behind all the services that are in front of our city. We work in good harmony with our district municipalities. We support them in matters that are beyond their means. I hope we will do this summer by working together in harmony and turning it into service. " said.
