HIGH DEMAND FROM CITIZENS: FIRST MUSIC BROADCAST STARTED ON KIZILAY-KORU LINE
EGO General Directorate cooperated with Ankara University Faculty of Communication (ILEF) to broadcast classical music upon popular demand from citizens.
EGO General Directorate Head of Department Yurtalp Erdoğdu stated that they plan to gradually implement classical music broadcasting on the Kızılay-Koru line as a pilot application in the first place, and gave the following information:
“Our primary goal is to ensure safe, fast and comfortable transportation of our citizens. We continue all our work day and night with this awareness. Apart from this, we wanted to carry out some activities that would be good for the tiredness and stress of the day during the transfer of our passengers at the stations. For this, we thought of music whose healing properties have been scientifically proven. As a result of a joint work with Ankara University Faculty of Communication, we started a music broadcasting application at our stations. We started the application on our Kızılay-Koru line in the first place. We want to expand this gradually. The opinions of our citizens on this issue via social media channels and Başkent 153 are also very valuable to us.”
Citizens who expressed their happiness in traveling with classical music also expressed their thoughts with the following words:
Nature Traveler: “I found the app nice. I think it is an application that makes people very comfortable during the journey.”
Melike Suitable: "Liked it very much. It gives people a relaxing atmosphere after work.”
Nisanur Dawn: “I usually read books while traveling, but classical music was even more relaxing. So time passes faster. We can either read a book or listen to music on the subway, so it was a successful and beautiful application.”
