The manufacturing work of our 5,5-kilometer tram line, which will reach the area where our additive junction work is located within the borders of Melikgazi, will be completed within the same period.

First of all, I would like to thank our contractor companies for their experience, construction quality, warm approach in business structure and clean work.
Büyükkılıç stated that the passenger capacity will increase by purchasing a total of 11 trams and continued his words as follows:
“I hope we will buy 11 tram cars in total. With these, the number of our wagons will increase, the passenger capacity and our routes will thus reach approximately 48 kilometers across Kayseri. First of all, I pray to Almighty Allah that these efforts reach their goals without any accident. I expect our fellow citizens from Kayseri to treat us with tolerance and toleration due to the difficulties we have caused in these works that we have involuntarily given. As a city that carries the comfort of metropolitan cities, which we always say, and minimizes the troubles of metropolitan cities, we pray to Allah that our efforts to increase the comfort of our trusting citizens who love us and to minimize our problems in transportation will be auspicious, Of course, I would also like to thank the team of our Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality.”
