Is it a Solution to remove it completely due to the pandemic?
In order to travel with Adapazarı train, tickets could be purchased from TCDD website. Therefore, it is easily possible to limit passengers. No passengers will be taken while standing. Considering the cleaning and disinfection of wagons to be carried out by the government, it is obvious that it will be safer than passenger transportation by buses and minibuses.
