ADVANTAGES OF NEW SEATS
EGO officials emphasized that the row seat arrangement will show a homogeneous distribution in passenger density, which will have many advantages and gave the following information:
“Thanks to the new row seat arrangement, the passenger capacity in each wagon series will increase from 240 to 270. The wagon interior will become more spacious. In particular, the agglomeration of door areas will be avoided. It will be easier for passengers traveling to or from AŞTİ to get on or off the trains. Passengers traveling with their suitcases will also have the opportunity to put their suitcases in the areas on the sides of the doors. As a result of expansion in the door areas, disabled passengers (especially those traveling with wheelchairs) will be able to move more easily during landing and boarding of our vehicles. ”
